WEEKLY NEWSLETTER - FRIDAY, 18 MAY 2018

ANNOUNCEMENTS

If anybody knows of anyone who is not well or in hospital, please inform the Shul office.

A generous contribution has been made towards the Brocha on 1st day Shavuot (Sunday) by Motti and Chantelle Ben-Ami in honour of their daughter, Noiya’s Batmitzvah.

SHABBAT CANDLE LIGHTING

Please note that although we daven Mincha on Friday at 17:30 and Kabbalat Shabbat at 18:00, Shabbat formally comes in by no later than 17:28 at which point all the laws of Shabbat come in to effect for everyone.  For women, this occurs immediately with the lighting of Shabbat candles, which this week is 17:10.
