Schedule for COVID-19

Mincha for people in the city to attend is currently in recess because many people are working from home, and the Rabbinic rulings relating to COVID-19 health and safety.

Based on Shulchan Aruch (Orach Chaim 90:9) which states that if someone is unable to attend services at shule, that they pray at the same time as the minyan, we are calling mincha daily at 2.00pm so that people – wherever they are working – can all pray at an agreed time. To add this to your calendar (from now until the end of DST), click here.

This schedule applies when there is no Daylight Saving Time.

Mincha @ 459: mincha is at 1.00pm on Monday to Friday at the office of Billing Bureau – Level 5 South Tower, 459 Collins St (cnr William St).

On Wednesdays, there is lunch and a shiur following mincha.
On Fridays, there is whisky & kugel following mincha.

There are a number of people currently saying kaddish, and they take the amud on a rotation basis. If you have a yahrzeit coming up and want the secure amud that day, please put a message on the WhatsApp group.

There is a daily SMS sent out to remind people about mincha, and any other special changes. To be added to the list, please contact us.

Mincha @ 101: mincha is at 1.30pm, at Wingate, Level 48, 101 Collins St on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and at L1 Capital, Level 28, 101 Collins St on Thursdays with lunch and a shiur.

On Mon-Wed, we will use a WhatsApp group to confirm numbers. To be added to the group, please see our weekly newsletter or contact us.

Schedule for Summer

Summer Schedule part 1 (from the start of DST until sometime in December): mincha switches to 1.45pm. Toward the end of November, the earliest time to mincha is after 1.45pm, so we move forward in 5 minute increments until around mid- to late-December, and then take a break for the summer. The Wednesday lunch & shiur starts at 25 mins before mincha, and Friday whisky & kugel starts about 15 mins before mincha.

Summer Schedule part 2 (from about the end of Jan until the end of DST): the latest time for mincha is 2.08pm in mid January. From then, it slowly gets earlier, and gets to about 1.55pm just before the end of DST. During this time of year, we now use a WhatsApp group to confirm numbers. To be added to the group, please see our weekly newsletter or contact us.
