The Dog Walkers' Minyan

By David Kraemer

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 2000

Simply by walking his dog in the neighborhood every night, the author forms significant friendships with a number of diverse people who are also walking their dogs. The author suggests using this model to create a meaningful Jewish community. He states that Jewish institutions should allow for members to meet incidentally while pursuing something that is of meaning to them in their everyday lives.
