Sukkot in 2017 will begin on the evening of the 4th October.
Thursday 12th Oct 6:30pm
For the first time ever, we will be celebrating Simchat Torah in Stokey Shul. It’s a relaxed, joyous occasion, with lots of dancing and singing, with drinks and snacks for adults and kids.
Chanukah 2017 begins in the evening of 12th December and ends in the evening of 20th December.
This year our Chanukah party is on Sunday 17th December from 6pm onwards, with candle-lighting at 6:30pm. There will be delicious food and drink, with lots of festival singing.
We’re also hosting a Chanukah party for preschool children on the same day, Sunday 17th December from 11am. Contact us for more information.
Please join us for our Purim party on Wednesday 28th March! Purim spiel, megillah readings, games and drinks!
After Purim we look forward to Pesach, which we mark in our community in two ways – with a Matzah ramble (a walk in the park with a matzah picnic), and an 8th Night Seder on Friday 6th April. For the first time we’ll be hosting services for the festival as well, on Saturday 7th April.
Explore Jewish questions at our study evening for the festival of Shavuot. We start with a service, followed by a potluck vegetarian dinner. Shavuot this year will be the night of Saturday 19th May.
