Free Spirits Join The Stuffed Shirts For Hoshana Rabbah

The Happy Minyan will take its joy to Bnai David Monday morning at 9 for a rocking Hoshana Rabbah prayer service replete with musical instruments.

“Why does the Happy Minyan have to dilute its simcha with those stuffed shirts at Bnai David,” groused one bloke.

I think both shuls will rock together and this concern above won’t be a problem.

The Happy Minyan is the only Orthodox shul where I consistently enjoy davening.
