Introducing us to the festival for this year, led by our Rabbis
Tikkun Ley’l Shavuot, 20:30-00:15 - Keep Taking the Tablets on Zoom
Our Tikkun Ley’l Shavuot this year takes the Ten Commandments to pieces and then puts them back together again. You can join us for all three sessions or just one or two, depending on your choice of bed time. Sessions will run: 20:30-21:15, 21:15-22:00 and 22:15-23:00 and 23:15-00:15 with breaks to get a coffee and piece of cheesecake to keep you going! Our Rabbis will be teaching with experts in each of the issues covered by the commandments.
Please keep reading for full details of Tikkun Ley'l Shavuot sessions, and Friday morning Shavuot services
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur 5781/2020 at EHRS
The High Holy Days for EHRS is an extraordinary celebration of community as well as being a spiritually transformative time for every individual in our congregation. Most years close to two thousand members come onto our Stonegrove site at the same time. This year, as we continue to cope responsibly and caringly with the Covid-19 pandemic, we will have to prioritise the highest Jewish value, pikuach nefesh, the preservation of life and adapt our High Holy Days experience accordingly. In the Talmud Yoma 83a our Rabbis tell us directly that this is what we must do as they consider a case where a building has collapsed near a Synagogue on Yom Kippur. They rule that the services must end immediately and all go out to help save anyone still living as long as there is still breath in their body.
Shabbat Stay & Play
every first and last Friday of the month, 10:30 - 11:45
Join us for a morning of fun and creativity at our Shabbat Stay & Play, for babies and toddlers. There will be singing, toys, a lovely Kiddush and refreshments. We welcome parents, carers and grandparents.
