Shabbat

Erev Shabbat - Friday Night

A Friday night service with us is relaxed and musical transition from the past week into the spiritual comfort, respite and regeneration of Shabbat. These take place at the synagogue as well as our local chavurah services in the surrounding area. 

Kabbalat Shabbat at the Synagoue
Fridays at 6:30pm and lasting around 45 minutes.

Local Chavurah Services
These take place in Welwyn (North Herts/South Beds) on the first Friday of the month, and occasionally in other areas where our members live. They offer an opportunity for our members and others living in the area to gather for a friendly, informal, musical Friday night service followed by a bring-and-share supper.  Please phone or email the office for further details or to be added to the mailing list.

Shabbat Morning

We welcome members and visitors alike to our weekly Shabbat morning service. We use the UK Reform Siddur, Seder Ha-t’fillot, which can be found together with other useful resources on our Live page of this website. 

Our young people celebrate becoming B'Mitzvah on Shabbat mornings (or afternoons) by leading part of the service and reading from Torah. There are often other celebrations such as Baby Blessings, Aufrufen, or special anniversaries during our services; these simchas are seen as community occasions for us all to share.

Shabbat morning services
Begin at 10:30am and last around 1hour 45min.

Choral Services
On the first Shabbat of each month our service singing is usually led by our own talented voluntary choir. The choir does not ‘perform’ for a congregation of ‘spectators’ – rather it supplements and encourages congregational singing and participation.

Toddler and Family Services

We regularly run Shabbat and Festival services especially appropriate for our younger members and their families.
Please see our weekly newsletter for details or email or phone the shul office. 

There are opportunities to improve your Hebrew or indeed to learn from scratch at The Learning Circle on Tuesday nights.
