Cars – Members wishing to leave cars, at their own risk, in the Shul Car park over Yom Kippur are advised that it will be open until 5.55 pm and will then be closed until the termination of Yom Kippur.

Shul Attire – Men, women and children should dress modestly as befitting a house of prayer. Men should wear a skull cap and married women should wear a head covering. On Yom Kippur leather footwear should not be worn. (This only applies to shoes, not to other items of clothing such as belts, jackets etc.) If one has been honoured with a mitzva during the service, care should be taken to ensure non leather footwear is being worn.

Shofar – Every effort should be made to attend Shul on Rosh Hashona to hear the Shofar being blown. If you are unable to attend and would like to hear the Shofar please  contact Rabbi Pink on 706 8736 and he will endeavour to arrange for you to hear it.

Lulav & Esrog – Anybody wishing to order a set of Lulav and Esrog should contact Rabbi Pink on 0121 706 8736 or by email: rabbipink@gmail.com before 26th September.
