Please note - visitors especially, you do not have to pay or get a ticket, to attend any of our services.
   
Donations - There is a donation box in shul BUT this cannot be used on festivals except Chanuka and Purim.
However, any donation you wish to give will be very welcome and this can be handed
to Jerry, our Synagogue Custodian, in an envelope. You will receive a letter of thanks once it has been banked.   

ALL visitors are very welcome, regardless of orthodoxy, but please be respectful and follow the orthodox guidelines as follows:  Gentlemen should sit downstairs and have their heads covered. You can borrow a yamalke (kippur). Ladies sit upstairs, unless they cannot climb stairs. In that case they can sit downstairs, but arrange it with the synagogue custodian, Jerry. For disabled visitors we have a portable disabled ramp, that needs to be set up so please phone or email Jerry to arrange it. (number below).
