Our initial pilot has been very successful, working to make Sinai a Jewish community that sings together in prayer, where every voice is welcome, finding its unique space to participate.

As Shabbat comes in and we are very nearly at Rosh Hashana, I know there are numerous and various messages regarding High Holy Days and the other festivals and events that come thick and fast at this time of the year, but I just wanted to give a brief update on the key issues of heating, Rabbinic recruitment, and the building.

CST is one of the most respected organisations in our community. Indeed, it is held in high regard outside our community too by the Police, other faith communities and Jewish communities around the world.

The Movement for Reform Judaism in the United Kingdom joins the nation in mourning the death of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II at the age of 96.

After two years of online only and restricted services, we look forward to welcoming all our members to Sinai for the services over Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, also for Sukkot and Simchat Torah. Information about our services is now on the website and on the HHD tickets.

Are you frightened by the ovens, intimidated by the water heater or just anxious about some or all that goes on in the kitchens. Please don’t be. We need volunteers to help with a range of activities from setting tables to heading up a team to put on a chavurah supper.
