    Yahrzeits

    The yahrzeit is a time of remembering the dead by reciting the Kaddish, lighting a 24-hour candle and remembering the person who has died. We keep a record of details of any yahrzeits our members may wish to commemorate.

    For each yahrzeit you would like to commemorate please provide: English Name, Maiden Name(if appropriate), Date of Death, Whether Death Occurred After Sunset, Hebrew Name, and Relationship to You.

    Community Activities

    NSNS grew from a series of conversations in 2007, which revealed the desire of a handful of families in Stoke Newington and beyond to be part of a community that was true to tradition, yet modern and inclusive. Since those families first met around assorted kitchen tables, we have put the emphasis on creating and building a community of people, one led by its own members. We are run by volunteers and we ask members to volunteer and help where they can. We aim for high member engagement, with low barriers for entry.

    Do you have any specific areas of interest (e.g. liturgy, culture, adult education, social events, fund-raising, youth provision, social action) about which it would be helpful for us to know? Are there areas of community life for which you have a particular passion and energy? Please give details below

    Indeed if you are willing to help the community in some way, we would welcome your involvement. Do you have any of the following skills you could offer on Shabbat / Chaggim?

    Masorti

    Masorti Judaism is an umbrella organisation which provides services that one synagogue alone cannot offer. These include a pan-European youth movement (NOAM), a Rabbinic Court (or Beit Din) and outreach activities. Masorti Judaism UK represents NSNS members nationally and internationally, and in dialogue with other denominations and faith groups. You can find out more here: www.masorti.org.uk.

    We would like to provide Masorti Judaism UK with your name and contact details. This information will be used to make you aware of activities and services provided by Masorti Judaism UK and other Masorti synagogues. It will not be passed on to any other organisation. If you are happy for your information to be passed to Masorti Judaism UK, please let us know.

    Payment

    As a charity we rely on your continued financial support to keep our activities running, our venues booked and our Rabbi paid. Rather than charge a fixed fee for membership since April 2019 we have moved to a fairer and more progressive model, where those able to contribute more are encouraged to do so, and those less financially able don’t need to apologise or ask permission to pay less.

    We instead ask you to donate, as you are able, according to a progressive income based model (please see table of suggested donation amounts below). We will never ask you to declare your income to us or question you regarding your financial status. We only ask you to be honest and as generous as you can. Donations above and beyond those recommended are of course very welcome.

    After submitting your application you will be redirected to Paypal to complete payment.
