Independent Minyanim and Prayer Groups of the 1970s: Historical and Sociological Perspectives

By Riv-Ellen Prell

Zeek, January 2008

In light of the recent proliferation of independent minyanim, the author examines havurot and other independent minyan phenomena in America during the 1970s. She explores the complaint that these groups operated in elitist ways, and the degree to which their members were and were not engaged with the denominations and other Jewish institutions.
