The Nachshon Minyan was established to bring a unique Jewish experience to the San Fernando Valley. Our goal is to reach out to those who have felt disconnected from Judaism or for whom it seems to have little relevance to their lives. We understand those feelings because many of us have felt the same way. We are a warm and welcoming community that observes Shabbat and holidays with services that are meaningful, joyful and inspiring.


Conversion Program

The decision to become a "Jew by Choice" is a profoundly personal one and reflects much thought and introspection.  Once the decision has been made, Rabbi/Cantor Greenfeld offers a year long program that will culminate in the actual conversion ceremony. The classes provide information on such topics as Jewish holidays and rituals, and hte relevance of the State of Israel, as well as study of the Torah and other Jewish Texts.  The program's overall objective is to give participants a deep understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a Jew.
