Party poppers, whizz balloons (during the megillah reading?), crazy hats and masques, Rabbi Zvi’s pizza-toshen, Rebbetzin Shira’s hamentashen… Don’t miss the fun and general craziness of Purim at JCoB Central. We will hold megillah readings in the evening, late morning and a last chance megillah reading at our seudah party.
Pesach / Passover
Our Pesach sederim are open to the community and we also have children's activities planned for the week. Please contact us to reserve your place or for information on how to obtain Passover food and sell chametz.
Shabbat morning services have now resumed at JCoB. We are a community that love to daven together and sing together, and everyone is included, whether men, women, or children. Services are in the garden in summer (which is glorious), in our marquee in the autumn, and indoors through the winter months.
Friday Night Oneg Shabbat
Experience the wonderful Shabbat atmosphere of a Shabbat evening at the Rabbi's house. Rebbetzin Shira's famous challah, chicken, vegetarian food and other tasties.
Seudah Shlishit / Havdallah
JCoB invites you to join us for a special Shabbat afternoon of songs, stories (and a little bit of food) followed by Havdallah.
Bring your own song or story to share or just come, listen, and enjoy.
Every Sunday morning during term time. We use the latest materials to teach Hebrew Reading, Festivals, Ethics and Prayer, catering to children from toddlers to teens. Our cheder is great fun – intellectually stimulating and socially buzzing.
At JCoB, Children's Services are not special events, they are an intrinsic part of shul life. We include children in our services so that they feel welcomed and involved, often using their knowledge from cheder to teach their parents how to join in. We also hold separate children's services to enhance the children's experience and keep them engaged and excited about coming to shul. We also have a family shacharit service every Sunday morning before cheder (pictured).
In addition to our weekly cheder, we have children's parties for Succot, Chanukah and Purim and other festivals. Specific dates are not usually published here, so to keep informed, please email us!
