Summer Candle Lighting

The time for the earliest candle lighting on Friday evening moves beyond 7.30 pm. Rabbi Wilson suggests that throughout June and July, women should light their candles at 7.50 pm. This will dovetail with the Friday night service in Shul, where, following Minchah at 7:30 pm, we begin the Kabbalos Shabbos service at around 7:50 pm. If one mistakenly lit too early, the lighting is actually invalid and the candles should be extinguished and re-lit!

Shabbos Project (Shabbat UK)

The Shabbos Project is an exciting global effort to encourage as many Jewish people to keep one Shabbos on Friday & Saturday 24 & 25 October 2014. Each Shul is left to its own devices to run imaginative programmes that will enthuse and engage the local community. The first thing to do is keep the date free. Next, commit to being part of Clayhall’s special Shabbos Project day. Finally, look out for the first release of information coming to you very soon. We want this to be a mammoth event attracting large numbers of people across all ages. The aim is to be ambitious and simply go for it! We are working hard to produce an outline vision to fill the whole day with inspiration and ending with a communal Havdalah party. All the Jewish Kiruv (outreach) organisations are taking part - Aish, Jewish Learning Exchange and Seed.

Please let either the Shul office, Rabbi Wilson or Gordon Miller know of any member(s) who is/are unwell. We will arrange home or hospital visits and shopping if necessary. We treat all information in the strictest confidence. Sometimes, there are situations where we can only offer limited help or we simply do not have the time, expertise or resources. So never hesitate to call Jewish Care Direct on 020 8922 2222.
