We are offering a different style of service each week in the hope that you will like one or two of them enough to come and try them out. If your child is over 5 and confident to be left you can get some adult time in the Main Service too. All services will start at 10.30am and have their own Kiddush.
On the first Shabbat of the month Rabbi Emily will be leading an informal round table brunch, short service and activity.
The second Shabbat of the month will be led by Grant Kay who has been leading services as a volunteer for several years, so if you are familiar with his style of Service you will know he likes to sing and tell stories and just have an informal service that lasts no longer than an hour.
On the second Shabbat Rabbi Emily also leads ‘Schmooze’ for everyone who is secondary school age.
On the third Shabbat of the month Rabbi Emily will be leading her ‘Shabbat Shirah’ service, this is a musical service with musical instruments for added effect so if you are a budding musician come and add your talents to the mix.
The fourth Shabbat will be led by Marilyn Albert, who has been voluntarily leading young children services at EHRS for nearly thirty years, she will continue to offer her stories and songs and short service.
When there is fifth Shabbat in the month we will be holding a family service as we want to take away the “is there isn’t there a children’s service we can go to today this week” and you can tell your friends that if they are coming to EHRS for a bar or bat mitzvah or other celebration they can leave their children (over the age of 5) in the service while they enjoy adult time in the Main Service.
Your children will also get a Shabbat Club card and stickers and each time they fill the card they will receive a Jewish gift.
There is also of course the Friday night service that starts at 6.30pm each week.
