      The Dead End Synagogue


      After a morning swim at the local mikva, I asked a Jew on the street where I could find a 7:30am minyan for prayer services. 

      Here's what he said: "7:40 minyan at the Dead End Shul."

      I was blown away. That sounded like a place for people like me. But I was puzzled, and my face showed it.

      The Yid continued: "Just take 147th street to the dead end. The shul is right there."

      Ladies and Gentlemen, click below on the JewTube video for my take on this.
