Shabbat Lech L’cha

PLEASE READ - COVID Update: given the virus is spreading we are ramping up protective measures. From this Shabbath we will be increasing social distancing, as a result our capacity will be further restricted, and we will be offering an additional minyan in an adjoining hall for late-comers. Apologies, but there will be no ladies seating at present. Registration is even more essential so that we not only know who’s coming but can plan accordingly*. If you change your plans and do not come, then please de-register, do not make us plan for unused capacity. Of course, the proper wearing of masks and hand hygiene are essential to stop the spread. All kids over 12 must be registered separately from the father.  Kids 8+ only if they are pre-registered for one of the SJWS kids services below. Please co-operate.

*Registration for every service and Shabbath services is an absolute requirement via the Doodle calendar link below. Please complete first name and surname; its not sufficient to say father plus his boys, you must register each person attending. For Shabbath attendance this must be done by Noon each Friday latest but you can update at any time, booking is available through 29th November via: . Again, if you change your plans and are not coming, then please de-register.

Minha Shabbath & Arbith Mosaei Shabbath: because of the situation this week we will try an early Minha; after Musaf Rabbi Fhima will give a shiur, then we will pray Minha. Arbith mosaei Shabbath will be approximately 15 minutes after 3 stars. See weekly timings below.

Pledges: if you have not already done so, please we would appreciate prompt settlement of these, for all the various ways to make payments, please see: Thank you
