Kehillat Ma’ayanot is the first traditional, egalitarian minyan in Jerusalem. Located in the Arnona-Talpiot area of southern Jerusalem, the community is based on the principles of equality, tradition, and social responsibility.

We are approximately 100 families made up of Ashkenazim and Sephardim; singles, families, and seniors; native Israelis and olim from North and South America, France, England, and Hungary. Men and women participate equally both in responsibilities and rights.

Members take turns participating in and coordinating services and giving Divrei Torah. Ma’ayanot is committed to religious observance and Halachah that is not stagnant, striving to find the balance between tradition and innovation. This is the common cause that powers our practical commitment to Jewish pluralism and mutual tolerance.

Our activities include Shabbat services, study sessions and seminars, children’s services, weekend retreats, holiday services, and activities for Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Lag B’Omer, and other holidays.
