Kiddies’ Corner opening this week!

We welcome children of all ages to our synagogue events and services. The only quiet synagogues are empty ones. Sometimes small children are noisy. The only thing a parent can do then is to hope that the noise will quickly be over, or take the child out of the service until quiet resumes.
Following Rabbi Ash’s proposal and the wonderful response we are pleased to announce that the Kiddies’ Corner is officially open as of this Friday night in the main hall behind the sanctuary. Parents will now be able to enjoy the service and still be close at hand in case of need while their small children play under the supervision of responsible adults. This will keep our synagogue a place which welcomes children.
To make our Kiddies’ Corner more attractive and suitable, we still need a few things. These include soft toys, other toys, kiddies books and games (which do not make noise!) and perhaps some large cushions or spongy mats. In other words, the kind of items found in a nursery or a crèche.
If you are able to donate such items or if you would like to contribute towards our purchasing them, please get in touch with any member of the ManCom or the office.
Thank you to those who have already so generously donated towards this project and who have volunteered their help!
