Does anyone know of a nice minyan in Lakewood that has yom kippur koton mincha tomorrow, AND has a women’s section?
Any helpful information will be much appreciated.June 18, 2012 8:10 pm at 8:10 pm #880191
I don’t know this personally, but I asked someone who does and he suggested the Capital Hotel in Lakewood.June 18, 2012 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #880192
There are a few minyanim of Yom Kippur in Satmar on Forest ave between 4th and 5th . I have noticed girls coming out of the ladies section there after minyanim, so I’m assuming that it’s for women as well.June 18, 2012 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #880194
If I pass by later today (which is quite possible) I will check the times and post it.June 19, 2012 1:26 am at 1:26 am #880195
Thank you- that would be amazing.June 19, 2012 3:10 am at 3:10 am #880196
Tonite is 99 nites left to Yom Kippur nite.June 19, 2012 3:17 am at 3:17 am #880197
why would a lady want to do yom kipur koton?June 19, 2012 3:32 am at 3:32 am #880198
why wouldn’t she?June 19, 2012 3:54 am at 3:54 am #880199
it is not a common practice. is it a segula or something?June 19, 2012 4:36 am at 4:36 am #880200
Maybe the OP is a man, and he wants to go to the minyan with a women’s section so he can ask the women that very question. Then he’ll be able to post the answer here.June 19, 2012 5:06 am at 5:06 am #880201
I know of an old woman who still fasts every Yom Kippur Kotton (and Monday and Thursday too). It was her family custom. Why can’t this woman be the same?June 19, 2012 6:04 am at 6:04 am #880202
There are many great things written about those that (fast on and) say the Tefilos of Yom Kippur Katan so hold your judgements. I checked the times before and they are as follows- 1:40 , 2:30 , 3:30 , 4:30 , 5:30 , 7:30 & 8:30 The shul is located at 405 Forest ave and the left side (steps) leads up to the ladies section.June 19, 2012 10:55 am at 10:55 am #880203
Sam2 – that’s amazing. Does this woman work?
mexipal – yom kippur koton does not distinguish between men and women. There are minyanim in Shomer Shabbos in 13th Avenue for Yom Kippur Koton and women attend all day long.June 19, 2012 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #880204
IR: She certainly doesn’t now. She would have retired before I was born (or when I was very young). I don’t know if she ever had a job other than being a housewife, which probably is just as hard to do as any other job while fasting.
