EHRS Parallel Services
While our classical Shabbat service takes place in the EHRS Beit Tefillah (Synagogue) our Rabbis will be offering parallel services at the same time elsewhere in our shul building. These services will include the major elements of Shabbat morning prayer, including the reading of Torah and saying of Kaddish, and will finish in time for all of our community to join together for Kiddush.

The Layers of the Prayers Explanatory Service
Our Shabbat service is made up of layers of Jewish texts built up from the Bible, the Mishnah, Talmud and liturgical poetry over hundreds of years to the present day. Join our Rabbis to uncover the history of Jewish prayer in an explanatory service, including an immersive Torah reading.
Saturday 11 January, 10:30-11:30
