The Jamaican minyan

David McFadden, at AP, has defined a "minyan" for his readers.

It’s Saturday morning at Sha’are Shalom, but there aren’t enough Jews gathered in the dim light of Jamaica’s only synagogue to conduct a formal prayer service.
An American tourist watches near the entrance of the historic temple as a half dozen members of Jamaica’s dwindling Jewish community instead perform informal Sabbath prayers led by a congregant. Without the 10 Jewish adults needed for a quorum known as a minyan, men and women gather around a mahogany platform raised above a sand-covered floor to pray and sing to the swelling chords of a pipe organ.

  1. Those half dozen Jamaican Jews should have just prayed as individuals. Oh, forgot, it's obviously a Reform 'shul'.!
