Nickel City Minyan is a small Buffalo based egalitarian Jewish group that gathers for monthly Shabbat services and community. We seek to support the ever-evolving Jewish lives of our friends in an environment that will welcome and enrich participants from all backgrounds, and with all levels of familiarity with Jewish texts and ritual. Our hope is that this young community will provide an inviting space for the members of the Buffalo community to share themselves, and their prayers. As a volunteer-led community, Nickel City Minyan derives its strength and its warmth from you.
