WELCOME TO OUR JEWISH NEIGHBOURHOOD
COVID-19 | Coronavirus
Shabbat and holiday services
Rabbi Lewin, Chazzan Zvi and the Board look forward to welcoming you to shul this Shabbat. Please note that only those who have registered for a service may attend. This is a condition of our Covid-19 Safety Plan which has been registered with the NSW Government.
Members will receive an email and an SMS message to register for the services.
Registering serves two important functions:
1. That we can track that we are under the limit on numbers of attendees set by the NSW Government
2. That in the case of a Covid-19 outbreak, we would be able to track who was in the shul at the time.
We know that there are many of you who cannot attend the services at present, but rest assured the Drasha on Youtube will continue, as well as a new series of shiurim on Zoom.
