Borehamwood held its first partnership minyan — an Orthodox service where some of the prayers can be led by women — last Friday evening.
The event, at the local Allum Hall community centre, attracted some 60 people, divided equally between the sexes, who sat separately on either side of a mechitzah. Men led minchah and ma’ariv. A woman took the Kabbalat Shabbat service.
