Pesach Pop Up Shop - URGENT COMMUNICATION
There is no doubt the support this year has been unbelievable. As we write this, we have received in excess of 500 orders – more than in either of the previous two years. We also have other community groups who are still to confirm their requests.

Important message regarding tahara, funerals and shiva
In the challenging times we find ourselves it is reassuring to know that Judaism has an immense body of wisdom and guidance that can help us. As we have said many times over the recent fortnight, Judaism's highest commandment is pikuach nefesh: saving a soul.
From the Chair
Judaism's highest commandment is pikuach nefesh: saving a soul. We also hold dear the principle of dina d'malkhuta dina: the law of the land is the law. With these key principles in mind, and following the government's announcement yesterday evening, we have now advised all our staff, and office volunteers, to stop coming into the synagogue.
Updated Message about Covid-19 (Corona virus)
It is now the right time for Sinai, as a community, to move to the next phase of protecting us all. As such, we will now be closing the Synagogue to all but essential staff, and occasional volunteer presence.
Message about Covid-19 (Corona virus)
Trustees are conscious of the constantly developing news around Covid-19 and can imagine that for some of our members the virus is causing concern. Along with the Rabbi, we had a long and informed discussion about how to respond at last night's board meeting.
Did you know that one of the most needed items for refugees in need is often the least donated? That's why JCORE is relaunching their annual #Pants4Purim campaign.
Sinai at Chagigah 2018
The biennial conference of British Reform Judaism took place once again in Nottingham.
Sinai was well represented by both lay and professional leaders, and families, who enjoyed the sessions focusing on synagogue transformation and what it means to be a Reform Jewish community in twenty-first century Britain.
The weekend was rounded off with a big screen showing of the England vs Panama match - a fabulous way to end a successful weekend!
