Proposed Changes to Shabbat Morning Activities at BE – Important note:

Although the new time schedule for the Shabbat Morning Services will start on Saturday 19 January 2013 as we have advised in the previous bulletins, please note that due to a pre arranged Barmitzvah for which invitations had already been sent out, the Service on Saturday 26 January 2013 will be at the original time of 10.00 a.m.
The new time schedule, as listed below, will continue thereafter from Saturday 2 February 2013.
09.00 Morning Service
10.30 Kiddush/Brunch Brochah
11.00 Jewish Study (as previous Torah Breakfast programme)
12.15 onwards Rabbinic literature (mainly Mishnah and Talmud) study
End by 14.00.
When a bar or bat mitzvah takes place, the time allowed for the service will run until 11.00 and all other times will be thirty minutes later. There are only six such occasions expected in 2013.
This new arrangement will be tried for an experimental period of 1 year. After the High Holydays 2013 it will be formally reviewed to see if it worked better than the previous scheme. We would welcome comments and feedback as we go through the year.
Russell Cohen, Chairman and Rabbi Ash
