Seventeen-year-old David, born into a Russian immigrant family, regularly helps out at his synagogue in New York’s heavily Jewish Brighton Beach. His father, a former boxing coach, his mother and his beloved grandfather all take this for granted. But David, who is just starting to apprehensively explore life in the 1980’s East Village gay scene, gradually begins to question the strict rules of his community and befriends two elderly gay Jews. Sensitive Minyan unobtrusively and with quiet humor depicts how one young man squares social attributions – immigrant, Jew, homosexual – with his own feelings and learns to define them anew.
