- Expanded Cheder trial – weekly sessions beginning Saturday 11th Jaunuary.
We are excited to announce, at the request of parents, a trial period of expanded cheder sessions starting this Saturday 11th January. Cheder will therefore be running weekly from 11am-2pm on days when we have a service, and from 11am-1noon on days when there is no service. There will then be a break for half-term after our session on 8th February, to be resumed on 29th February, with the final session in this trial taking place on 7th March.
These additonal cheder sessions are geared towards those young people in our community aged 10-13, and will focus on Jewish Identity and children’s Hebrew. If you would like your child to participate or would like any further information about this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Next Shabbat Morning – Saturday 18th January from 11am
Our Shabbat Morning service is at 11am as usual. Please bring something vegetarian to share for kiddush.
Set-up normally begins at around 9.30, and anyone who wants to help is welcome – with a chance to spend time with other Kehillah members before the service starts. If you would like to be honoured by participating in the service please make sure to arrive in plenty of time and speak to the warden.
Following that we have a Shabbat morning service on 1st February and a service, with the celebration of Nasdiya’s Bat Mitzvah 15th Febuary. Please note that due to the Bat Mitzvah, our service on 15th February will begin at the earlier time of 10:30am. Nasdiya’s family would also like to invite the community to kiddush, which they will be providing after the service.
