- Shabbat Morning Service with induction of Cantor Tamara Wolfson : earlier time of 10:30am Saturday 16th March
Please note that our Shabbat Morning Service on Saturday begins at the earlier time of 10:30am to allow us extra time to celebrate Cantor Tamara’s induction. This will also be our final service at the New Community Rooms as St. Mary’s Church is carrying out major refurbishment on the rooms until at least the end of 2019.
This special service will be led by Cantor Tamara and members of our community, as well as Rabbi Shulamit Ambalu. Children’s Hebrew is at 10am and Cheder is at 11am. Please bring vegetarian finger food to share for Kiddush

- Purim party at our temporary home at William Patten School – 5-8pm 20th March
Our first event at our temporary home at William Patten School will be our Purim party. The hall we will normally be using is wheelchair-accessible. But, the first hour or so of the Purim party will have to be in the upstairs hall, and sadly there is no lift. We are very sorry we have had to compromise on this occasion, but everyone will be able to join us from 6pm regardless of mobility issues.
Bring food, drink, hamantashen and gragers. Fancy dress encouraged! We plan to create an on-the-spot Purim Shpil and this will be an all-ages event.

If you would like to attend but have yet to let us know please contact Ashleigh the Administrator, as space is limited and please bring something vegetarian to share.
