New Quicker Shabbat Shacharis Service. We are collecting names of those who might be interested in a second minyan on Shabbat mornings. It will start at about 8 – 8:30am (tbc) and will be a much quicker service for those who prefer. It will be followed every week by a kiddush sponsored by the Shul. If you are interested in attending this service then please contact us.
The ERUV is HERE The Shul are proud to be including in the Eruv. This means that you can now carry your prayer books and tallasim to Shul on Shabbos and Yom Tov, providing that you are also within the eruv boundaries. Please check the Eruv website for an up to date map.
Shabbos Mincha now every week approx 30 minutes before sunset.
Shabbos Maariv now every week straight after Shabbos is out.
New Office Opening Hours. The office will be open on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:00 until 2:00 and Sunday from 9:30 until 12:00.
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis visits our Shul. What an historic day when the first Chief Rabbi in 50 years visited our Shul on Sunday 29th January for the official induction of Rabbi Yanky Prijs. Over 150 people attended including Dayan Berger from the Beth Din and many Rabbonim and executives from Shuls both in and around Manchester. They were expertly entertained by our quartet of Chazonim, Martin Radnan, Simon Caplan, Alan Goodman and Menachem Leiberman. All of the speakers spoke superbly and the perfect afternoon was finished with a delicious buffet reception where the Chief Rabbi mingled with the community.
