Yom Kippur Memorial Prayer

The Yizkor service arrangements this year will be similar to last year’s:

a special Yizkor service in which names will be read out, to be held on Motzei Shabbos 1st October at 8pm;  a Yizkor service on Yom Kippur after leining during which names will not be read out.

The special Yizkor service on Motzei Shabbos 1st October will be in person and also via Zoom. Those members who wish to attend in person can either remain in shul after Ma’ariv (starting at 7:25pm at the end of Shabbos) or come in time for Yizkor.

The service will include the Yizkor prayers and the names of loved ones who have been registered will be read out.  This will be the only opportunity to hear the names as they will not be read out in the Yizkor service on Yom Kippur.

If you would like the names of departed relatives to be read out during the 1st October Yizkor service please provide their names separated by a comma in the note field after clicking the Donate button below.

We will not be able to accept any more names on to the list after Wednesday 21st September at midday.

Since lockdown we are pleased to say that initiatives were immediately put in place to assist members that required help, ranging from daily shopping to picking up prescriptions. 

Unfortunately, over the past few months a number of members or their relations have passed away to whom we offer our heartfelt condolences.  Our lives have changed, whether our working day or just being able to leave our homes freely without any concerns.

As the country starts to get back to some normality (whatever that might be); places of worship have been given guidelines and conditions for reopening.  We have been working hard for some time to ensure the safety of our members when the shul reopens.  You will have seen from our 25 June letter setting out some of the plans and requirements that we have been following public health specialist’s advice.  We want to make coming back to shul as safe as possible.  Whilst we have made every effort to reduce the risk to members of catching the virus from others,… read more
