Join your friends at Clayhall Shul for a morning of fun at our Children’s Service for Nursery to Year 3. Led by Deborah Harris, the enjoyment begins at 10.30 am with davening followed by stories, games, discussions, prizes, nosh and a Kiddush! Like the 47 Club, the Children’s Service was busy over the Yomim Noraim and the next regular Shabbos cycle is on 25 October. Then the service will be on 8 and 22 November, and 6 and 20 December. Don’t miss all these wonderful opportunities to get involved with the Shul.
The 47 Club
Clayhall Shul launched the new 47 Club for all children in school years 4-7 last month. Led by Naomi Harris, it includes topical discussions, interactive and explanatory davening, and a Kiddush. After the success of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and Succos programmes, the 47 Club continues the fortnightly Shabbos cycle on 25 October. The service times are identical to the Children’s Service below. If you attend at least 10 “47 Clubs” before Simchas Torah 2015 (excluding Chagim), super prizes will be awarded. This project is supported by Tribe and is being run by the now officially named, Clayhall Tribe.
