The shul in Lancaster davens at 7am + 1/2 hour drive from our hotel = not my idea of a vacation getting up at 6am  ;D

Looking to arrange somethin at a more civilized hour...
On Monday 08/22 there was a minyan at 8 and at 8:30 at the shul. I know that's not late enough to be considered civilized :) but its getting there.

But then there's the drive

just spoke to a friend that was there, he said that if you go down in the lobby of the hotel it looks like a big shul with minyunim every 15 min  :)

I'm not sure what hotel he was, I can try to reach him and ask him,

Not much, but there is a Giant supermarket there I think. They have a kosher section with matza balls and grape juice :)
