The Men’s Club at Temple Emanu-El in Closter hosts its annual “Minyan on the Mountain” on Sunday, May 22, at 9 a.m. The group will meet at the bridge on the 9W trailhead in Alpine to take an invigorating short walk to a breathtaking overlook where they will lay tefillin, pray, and sing, led by Rabbi David-Seth Kirshner.
The trailhead is directly opposite the FM radio tower on Route 9W, about two miles north of Closter Dock Road, where the Forest View trail crosses the parkway on a pedestrian bridge. (It is just south of a similar pedestrian bridge that crosses Route 9W itself, for the benefit of Boy Scouts hiking to nearby Camp Alpine, about 0.5 miles north of the Japanese restaurant.) For information, email Steve Sachs at email@example.com or call the shul, (201) 750-9997.
