The synagogue continues its usual services, despite the small number of congregants.

A religious center in Bucks County is continuing their unique services, event after seeing a decrease in regular attendees. Jarred Saffren wrote about the local center for the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent.

Darkaynu, located at 2040 Street Road in Warrington, is a nondenominational synagogue which has seen its already-small congregation ebb and flow in numbers since its opening in 2009. Now that the center has seen members come and go, regular attendees number at just 15 people.

Renting their space in the BuxMont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, the congregation hosts monthly Torah studies and regular Shabbat services, which are hosted by two regular congregants, as the center has not had a rabbit in two years.

Many of the congregants have grown to enjoy the small community, as it is more tight-knit and makes for better communication between one another.

“We’re a pretty cohesive group,” said Doylestown resident Mark Feingold, a longtime member. “We’ve gotten to know each other well. We enjoy each other’s company.”
