READING OF THE LAW AND HAFTAROT

 

For the present, having consulted our congregants, we will continue to ask the persons called up to the Reading of the Law, to recite the blessings from their seats – standing and looking up at the open sefer torah.  The hagbe and the reading of the haftarah will be from the bimah.

 

If you wish to be called up to read a particular haftarah, please let Charles Vitez know.

 

 

PURIM PROGRAMME

 

We have great pleasure in announcing the Wembley Synagogue Purim programme. 

 

We hope that, having come out of the current restrictions, as many of you as possible can participate and finally meet up with old friends and acquaintances and enjoy their company.

 

Sunday afternoon, 13 March, starting at 3:00 pm, the Wembley Link Committee invite you, your family and friends, to a “Sweets and Treats” Purim party in the Bessie Clapman Hall.  We have now closed the attendee list for processing and cannot accept any further applicants for places at the party.

 

We proudly announce that we have secured the services of Daniel Cainer, who is a very popular Jewish entertainer. 

 

Mincha, followed by Maariv will be in the main synagogue, starting at 5:30 pm. Gentlemen please make every effort to stay on and make up the minyan as we have aveilim who need to say kaddish.

 

Fast of Esther is on 16 March and the fast commences at 4:34 am, ending at 6:47 pm.

 

Purim commences on the evening of 16 March.  Mincha in the synagogue, including leining, will start at 6:00 pm. This will be followed by Maariv at 6:50 pm and at approximately 7:00 pm there will be the in-person reading of the megillah by Benny Rowe; who returns to us again, by popular request, after an unavoidable absence last year.

 

There will be hamantaschen and tea and coffee served in the back of the Beth Hamidrash after the service.

 

Purim (day) Shacharit in the morning (17 March) in the synagogue will commence at 9:00 am (and will include leining), followed by the reading of the megillah by Benny Rowe at approximately 10:00 am. 

 

There will be hamantaschen and tea and coffee served in the back of the Beth Hamidrash after the service.

 

We have given very careful consideration to the service timings and hope that, in addition to attracting as many gentlemen as possible to our services (who will be needed to make up a minyan), as many ladies as possible will also be able to join us to hear the in-person reading of the megillah both on erev Purim and on Purim morning.

 

US CHESED PESACH PARCELS

 

Once again we are proud to announce that US Chesed will be taking over parts of our site to prepare and pack Pesach parcels for those in our wider Community who need that little bit of extra help at Pesach from 15 March.  Inevitably there will be some disruption to our use of the site and for that we apologise, and ask for your co-operation in finding ways to get around obstacles. The most obvious disruption will be when you enter the Bessie Clapman Hall; not only will the Hall have been cleaned for Pesach much earlier than we usually do it, but you will need to approach the shul via lanes created between pallets and boxes.  Having handed over the Hall, all kiddushim and refreshments after 15 March, will be taken in the back of the Beth HaMidrash. The objective is so praiseworthy that we must all work together to try to minimise any disruption.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

If you feel unwell and think you might have caught the virus (and remain at the contagious stage), please stay at home, look after yourself and get well soon.

 

It remains, “best practice”, to provide good ventilation during the service and to that end, we leave some windows open.  The corollary is that despite the heating being on it may still be a little cold in shul and we would advise you to dress accordingly.

 

The office in the shul is only very occasionally manned and we are therefore unable to collect post in a timely manner and, therefore, we cannot undertake to bank cheques, charity vouchers or cash.  This is particularly relevant if you wish to pay your shul bill other than by direct debit and we would ask you to please pay via BACS (see below) or ring Sheila Braude on 07871754602 (not on 0208 904 6565) and she can take your credit or debit card details. 

 

If you wish to make a BACS transfer. Please use the following banking details:

 

NatWest Bank Sort code: 60-80-07;  

Account number: 79500420; 

Account name:  Wembley United Synagogue 

 

Similarly, we cannot undertake to deal with letters in a timely fashion and would ask you to use email as much as possible.  Our email address is: office@wembleysynagogue.org.uk

 

We wish you and your families, good health, and Shabbat Shalom.
