At Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

Each year before Rosh Hashanah you’ll receive a ticket in the post giving you full details of service times and children’s services.

We also plan a full range of ‘extra-curricular’ programmes tailored to each festival to enable the whole community to engage, learn and celebrate fully. On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur this includes:

  • ‘Service Support’ in the dual form of the public announcement of page numbers in shul, and the distribution of explanatory fliers on seats.
  • Parallel Explanatory Services from guest rabbis for all the family.
  • Shabbat Shuvah drasha from Rabbi Michael between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
  • ‘Ask the Rabbi’ Question and Answer session for congregants on Yom Kippur afternoon.
  • ‘Radical Reading’ session (rigorous textual discussion) parallel to the shul service, on Yom Kippur afternoon.
  • Refreshments at the end of Yom Kippur.
