Since the COVID pandemic all our services have moved online. We hold a weekly weekly pre-Shabbat Kabbalat Shabbat service, led each week by different members of the community. It includes Mourners’ Kaddish for those observing a Yahrzeit, some words of Torah and a five minute ‘Breakout Kiddush’ so we can each have a chat with somebody else in the community. We hope you will join us.
We have previously met on the 2nd and 4th Shabbats (Saturday) of each month, sending out details of the venue through our email newsletter. We like to think our services have the best of tradition – mostly in Hebrew, with all the familiar melodies – and the best of modernity, with men and women taking a full and equal part. We also have services for children and – another tradition – a terrific Kiddush. Once a month our Rabbi Roni and his wife Shoshana host a Friday night service and vegetarian potluck dinner.
We welcome members and non-members alike to participate in all our services.
We are an egalitarian community, with equal roles for men and women, with mixed seating and a relaxed dress code. We try to ensure all mobile phones are switched off and the rules regarding avoiding use of technology and writing etc. are observed while with the community.
If you are marking a yahrzeit (the anniversary of the death of someone close to you) and would like to mark it with an Aliyah on a particular Shabbat, please get in touch, whether or not you are currently a member.
