Since the resumption of regular services in Park Row Synagogue during the Covid-19 pandemic outside of lockdown periods, we have been starting Shacharit (Morning Service) on Shabbat at the later than usual time of 10.30am.
We are now pleased to announce that, with effect from Shabbat 4th June, we will be returning to our normal (pre-pandemic) start time of 10.00am for all Morning Services, unless otherwise specifically advertised.
Shacharit will start at 10.00am on Shabbat from 4th June, and assuming we do not have to wait too long for a minyan, the leyning (Reading of the Law) should be at 10.45am. We will aim to end Shabbat services by about 12 o’clock noon, but please do remember that there is normally a Kiddush in the Frank Cohen Hall afterwards, to which all Congregants and visitors are cordially invited!
Festival services may start a little earlier and finish later.
In order to attain a minyan so as to enable a prompt start (and finish!) to full Shabbat services, Congregants are kindly requested to arrive at the Synagogue as close as possible to 10.00am.
If any Congregants are concerned about the Covid situation, please be reassured that we keep the shul windows and doors open during services and the Kiddush, to enable maximum circulation of fresh air in the building; and any who wish to wear face masks are welcome to do so. Hand sanitiser and face masks are available at the front gate.
We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in shul over the coming weeks and months!
