Drey mogendovidlach (mikro)

Shabbat services are held twice a month, with both Friday night and Saturday morning services. Our aim is to make everyone feel at home, whatever their knowledge of Hebrew or of attending services elsewhere. In short, our keywords are ‘welcome’ and ‘inclusiveness’. No Jewish event is complete without food, so our Friday night services are followed by kiddush and dinner. Everyone brings a dish to share. Visitors are welcome. Services begin at 7 p.m. Shabbat morning services retain the traditional structure. Most start at 10 a.m. They include a study of the weekly torah portion, either through discussion or the sermon. Services are designed to be inclusive and encourage members of all ages to participate. They provide good training for our bar and bat mitzvah students. The IJC celebrates the main Jewish festivals, not only Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Services remain informal; participation and questioning are encouraged. Children are well catered for with special activities. On Purim and Chanukah, the community gathers for large celebrations. It also holds a communal seder at Passover.
