Instructions for Minyan Maker

This outlines our new system for signing up for minyan.  It is very simple, but like all new systems, it may take a few tries to become comfortable with it.

Please register to participate in our new Minyan Maker Sign Up Program here.  Please use your name and cell phone number and email.   

Once we have your cell phone number, you will periodically receive a text inviting you to attend minyan in the morning or in the evening for a specific day. When you receive that text, click on the link in the text that says Minyan Maker v2.0. See the image below for an example of this text.
 

Once you click on the Minyan Maker v2.0 link it will automatically open the Beth El minyan page on your browser and it will display a specific day and time for a minyan. Next, you will update your status for that minyan (“I’ll be there” “Available if Needed” “Sorry Not Available” are all options). See the image below for an example of this. (Notice the date and time of the minyan is at the top of the page. When you click on the status next to your name the options for your availability appear- see the example next to Rabbi Schuck’s name).   

 

 

Please update your status for that date and for future dates as well. The minyan app will have dates for each day of the month (excluding Shabbat morning). Please sign up in advance for as many days as you can. This will minimize the number of texts that people receive. You can click the date at the top and you will see a drop down menu of other dates on which you can sign up (see below image).

 

Even if you see that the minyan has 10 people already signed up, please sign up because people might need to change their status and we would love for you to join us!   

If we do not have ten people signed up for a minyan, we will text you by 7pm the day before the minyan asking if you can attend the next day. For example, if only 8 people have responded that they will attend Tuesday morning minyan, we will send you a text by 7pm on Monday asking if you can attend. Please do not ignore the text. Communicating your status will just take a moment and will help us a great deal. 

We will begin using the app immediately for minyan sign up. Please do not use the SignupGenius sheet any longer. We will delete that account on September 8th, once people have adjusted to the minyan app. 

If you have not done so yet, please add your cell phone number and email to this document in order to be included in this initiative. 

Anyone who wants to attend our minyan can send me their information so that I can add them to our database. One does not need to be a member to be on our list. 

We appreciate your patience and collaboration as we improve our minyan system, and remember, we are only as effective as the number of people using the app! 

If you have any questions, please be in touch with me directly.

Thank you.
