The DAT Minyan is a Modern Orthodox synagogue on the East Side of Denver, affiliated with the Orthodox Union. Our synagogue is a friendly and welcoming environment that is dedicated to enhancing Jewish life and giving all of the members of the community an exciting and meaningful Jewish experience. The DAT Minyan has experienced tremendous growth since 2005 while transitioning from a small Shabbos morning minyan with a handful of members to a full service synagogue with over 130 member units. This growth necessitated the hiring of a Youth Director and Teen Program Director to coordinate Shabbat and weekday programming for our expanding youth program. As the Shul continued to grow, the need for a full time rabbinic presence became evident, which led to the hiring of Rabbi Asher Klein in August, 2011. While we were saddened to bid Rabbi Klein and his family farewell in the fall of 2014, we are also excited to usher in the next chapter in our young Shul's life.
The DAT Minyan offers a unique environment that encourages individual growth in learning, prayer, and connections to our fellow man. The Shul offers varied adult educational programming throughout the week. There are many classes offered on varied levels, which appeal to individuals with a wide spectrum of Jewish knowledge. The Shul prides itself on the Davening environment that is created on a daily basis. The appreciation for a quiet and spiritual Davening is pervasive throughout the Shul, and everyone helps creates a Davening experience that is meaningful and beautiful. The Shul has always made it a priority to ensure that every person that walks through our doors feels at home and welcomed. Our appreciation for the State of Israel is evident through our learning, Davening, and social action. Many opportunities are available to become involved in areas related to adult education, youth programming, Davening, social programming and more. We are always encouraged by the many individuals that give of their time to help our Shul thrive. Please do not hesitate to contact us and let us know how you would like to become involved in the continued growth of one of the most exciting, dynamic, and warm Shuls you have ever seen!
