These minyanim take place on Chagim and every Shabbat morning, except when there is a barmitzvah or a batmitzvah. The services are run by the youth under adult guidance, and provide an opportunity to become more familiar with synagogue services in a youth-friendly atmosphere. Parental encouragement for their teenagers to participate in the minyanim helps them to feel comfortable and familiar with services later in their adult life.
