About Us


Altshul is an independent, egalitarian minyan that is guided by halacha and follows the traditional liturgy. It meets on the second and fourth Shabbat mornings of every month in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York.


In June of 2005, twenty Brooklynites got together in a local bar to plan for the creation of a spirited egalitarian community-run minyan. Since its first meeting in September of 2005, with the generosity of many supportive individuals and organizations, Altshul has grown into a flourishing community in which to pray, learn, and socialize.
