Please join us for both Friday night and Shabbos day davening in the beautiful backyard of the Fried Family:

1124 South Wetherly Drive
between Pico & Whitworth Drive


🚸 Policy for Children at the Minyan - Updated
Please take a moment to review these important guidelines
with your children.

Congregating on Wetherly Drive
Children are required to remain with their parents inside Fried's backyard on Friday nights and not congregate on front lawn or anywhere on Wetherly Drive. Children over the age of 6 are strongly encouraged to participate in the davening!

On Shabbat day Happy Minyan provides a monitor for children from 10:30am-12:00pm on Weatherly Drive. Children must stay within eyesight of the monitor and not go around the block. Before and after these hours, children must stay with their parents inside the Fried's backyard.

Appropriate Behavior inside the Shul
Happy Minyan aims to be a shul where children look forward to and enjoy davening! It is not appropriate for children to be running wildly through the shul disrupting davening. Please be mindful of your child's behavior and partner with us to keep a safe, respectful and joyous environment.


House & Restroom Policy
We are tremendously grateful to the Fried family for allowing us to gather, eat, drink, dance, sing, learn, celebrate and pray in their peaceful and private backyard. We ask that everyone please respect their request to not enter the home. Happy Minyan provides a portable restroom delivered fresh and new each week, located on the front driveway. Thank you in advance for your full cooperation.

What is Parshas Parah?
On the Shabbat prior to the month of Nissan we read a special Torah portion which details the laws of the red heifer; an offering used to cleanse the ritually impure before bringing the Paschal lamb.
Reb Shlomo Carlebach zt"l 
Parsha Shemini
(Via Stuie Wax)

I want you to know, it says “Vayehi Bayom Hashmini.” It was on the eight day.
How does time work? Everybody knows there are seven days in a week, and then again seven days and again seven days. What’s the 8th day? And what is the holy of holiest all about?


You know friends, in a crazy way, we all want everything- but you know what we really want? We want something which we don’t know about. We have a feeling there is something in the world, which we don’t know of yet, and that’s the deepest in the world.
I want you to know; you know what’s happening to the world, they are looking for that special something in all the wrong places. And here I want you to know something, the deepest depths. This parsha begins with Vayehi Bayom Hashmini. You know what the holiness of our children is? They are looking for the 8th day before they even know about the 7 days. They have this deep longing for something; they just don’t know what it is. But you know what the Torah says? The Ribbono Shel Olam has it for you. Don’t run to India. It's right here and this is the holy of Holies; Mamesh there for you.

You know friends, we are living in a world where there is so much longing for the eighth day. Take the whole generation of the 60's. They weren’t looking for the 7th day, they were looking for the 8th day. And then nebech, they lost faith in the world and they decided okay, let's drop out, there is no 8th day. Let’s be happy with the 7 days. Now it’s a little bit in the middle. You know why they were so angry at their parents? Because their parents never told them about the 8th day and if any of those kids would have talked to their parents about the 8th day they would send them to a psychiatrist. It's true, not even joking. You know when why your children were so angry at you? Because you didn’t tell them about the Kodesh Kodashim (holy of Holies) and you didn’t tell them Vayehi Bayom Hashmini, ( the 8th day) you didn’t tell them that a Jew can run into the holy of Holies from the lowest place in the world. Always, always. Always welcome. And I want to bless you and me that this should be the first thing we are giving over to our children.
