Yom Kippur Memorial Prayer

We will be holding a special Yizkor service via ZOOM this year on Motzei Shabbos 26 September at 8.15pm.

For those members not on ZOOM are invited to come to shul at 8.15pm (prompt) for the service.

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 a memorial prayer recited during Yizkor for a departed relative please provide their names below, separated by a comma. We will not be able to accept any more names on to the list after Thursday at midday.

A donation of £10 is suggested per person.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING BOOKING FOR SERVICES AND THE YOMIM NORAIM

We are pleased to advise the kehilla that with immediate effect there is no need to book for midweek Shacharis and Mincha/ Maariv services.  We have been able to make this change as the daily attendance is within the shul’s capacity.

A daily register of attendees will be kept by John and Alan for trace and track purposes.

It is still imperative to book for Shabbos morning services.

Yomim Noraim

We sent a survey to all members prior to “coming out of lockdown” we asked if you would be attending Shabbos morning services, 93 people confirmed attendance however only 25 have actually attended since the shul re-opened; with this kind of disparity it makes impossible for us to plan services for the Yomim Noraim, so we urge you to take this matter seriously and not to book just in case you might attend. We will be sending details out later this week with booking details.

WHEN BOOKING FOR THE YOMIM NORAIM PLEASE ONLY BOOK IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE ATTENDING SERVICES IF THE CURRENT SITUATION TODAY REMAINS THE SAME.

Thank you for your cooperation in these matter

Rosh Hashanah Services

Dear Members,

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

We are delighted to have been able to re-open our shul for some services a few weeks ago, with our comprehensive keeping each other safe plan and processes being adhered to, for which we thank everyone.

As a Kehilla, Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the most important days of the year. This year particularly we pray for those who need blessings for recovery and good health and remember those who are no longer with us. More than ever, we ask Hashem to inscribe all of us in the book of prosperity, peace, good health and life and put an end to this virus.

People come to Synagogue during the High Holy days for different experiences and reasons; our membership represents a broad age group, health groups and differing levels of religious observance. 

This year, as everyone will appreciate, the situation is uncertain as to the services and numbers we will be allowed; we will be following Government guidance and will institute our own strategies to ensure that all members can attend shul in a safe environment.

Despite the uncertainty we nevertheless have to plan for services and assess… read more

We Are Coming Out of Lockdown

WE ARE COMING OUT FROM LOCKDOWN

On the 17 March 2020 we took the difficult and unprecedented decision to close the shul in order to protect the Yeshurun family.

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
