A Carlebach Minyan is a synagogue or prayer service that follows the style of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. There are such minyanim in various cities around the world.

These minyanim are distinctive for their emphasis on singing the liturgy, often using Carlebach's original nigunim.

According to Rabbi Jonathan Rosenblatt, Carlebach "changed the expectations of the prayer experience from decorous and somber to uplifting and ecstatic as he captivated generations with elemental melodies and stories of miraculous human saintliness, modesty and unselfishness. " [1]
