We will be holding Succot services each day of Yom Tov, starting at 10am and finishing by midday. We are still waiting for guidance if we are able to put up a Succah and have a quick kiddush – a final decision will be made in the next few days.
Lulav and Etrog (Arba Minim): In previous years the shul purchased additional sets of Arba Minim to share amongst congregants in shul who did not have their own; however, we have been advised that sharing of Arba Minim outside one’s own family bubble is not permitted due to Covid-19.
This year we are encouraging people to consider purchasing their own individual set – even if you have not done so before. To this end we have sourced some basic sets, priced at just £18, and we hope that many of you will wish to take up the opportunity of fulfilling this mitzvah. There is value in “beautifying” the mitzvah of Arba Minim by buying the highest quality and so we are also offering, as usual, sets at a cost of £35.
You can order your Arba Minim on-line (at the same time as booking your seat in Shul) or by calling the Shul office – today until 2pm, Thursday midday to 6pm and Friday 9am to 1pm. All orders must be in by Friday at 1pm as we need to confirm quantities with our suppliers for delivery straight after Yom Kippur.
Bookings are now open for Succot – with services each morning as well as Mincha and Maariv the preceding evenings. Click here to book now – bookings close on Tuesday 29th September.
