A Jewish Orthodox Minyan, is the quorum of 10 or more male adults required for daily religious rituals. This multi channel video installation portrays the space in which my Dad performs these rituals with his companions at Minyan. Focusing on male mateship through religious practice, this installation seeks to explore the multiple purposes of this space, and the sense of belonging it creates. Documented from a first generation Australian secular Jewish male perspective, I am both an insider and outsider. Wishing to seek secular connection to religious ritual, I examine the multiple ways that one can engage with ritual space.
