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 expect everyone to contribute in some way. 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 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 propose making details of your name and contact details available to Masorti Judaism. This information will be used to make you aware of activities and services provided by Masorti 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, please let us know.
