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.

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.
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!
