“Freedom Day” (19th July) did not necessarily mean freedom.

We are committed to caution and thoughtfulness around how we gather in the building. We will watch carefully to ensure we remain vigilant. We know the Delta strain is raising concern but keeping open and available is also our priority.

We are, this week, able to bring in a lovely change advocated by Liberal Judaism alongside our fellow organisations of Reform, Masorti and United Synagogues.

We can now sing (quietly) behind face masks!

As promised we will continue to:

  1. Observe social distancing in the synagogue, laying chairs 1 metre plus and encouraging all social interaction to happen in the car park and beyond.
  2. Provide kiddush with individual plates for us all so we get to share in hamotzi.
  3. Keep doors and windows open to ensure the best ventilation possible.
  4. Run learning and groups on line, indeed all events will now be hybrid for the foreseeable future.

Shabbat Shalom
