We have an active and enthusiastic volunteer force, committed to developing and improving synagogue life through the following committees and groups. If you would like to help or get in touch with any of them, please contact the Synagogue office on 020 8886 0977.
The Welfare Group is a band of dedicated members who are friends of the community. Like all good friends they are willing to help and support where they can. A worry shared is a worry halved. Please phone the Synagogue office if you, or any member you know, might need help or advice on welfare, health or community matters or need home or hospital visits.
Facilities for the Disabled
Ground floor facilities in both the Sanctuary and the Hall are excellent, with induction loops to amplify sound for anyone wearing a hearing aid, and easy wheelchair access. Large print copies of the weekly and High Holy Day prayer books are available.
We also provide:
• disabled parking spaces
• special toilet facilities
• a wheelchair on site
Guide dogs are welcome.
Members of our active Welfare Committee regularly visit the sick in hospital and people who are ill at home. They can always be contacted via the Synagogue office for help and support.
In the Event of a Death
In the event of the death of a relative or friend, in the first instance contact our funeral director:
Ronnie King: 020 83687453.
Burials are arranged through the Synagogue at the grounds in Edgwarebury Lane or at Cheshunt and cremations at Golders Green.
The Synagogue has appointed Ronnie King as its funeral director and the company will make all arrangements at this sad time. In normal circumstances, the full cost of a member's funeral will be met by the Synagogue through its burial scheme, details of which can be obtained from the Synagogue office. Rabbi Keren will normally conduct funerals for Synagogue members.
Although we will arrange for a rabbi to conduct shivah prayers as far as possible, there are a number of lay readers who are able to lead prayers as needed. Contact the Synagogue office in the first instance.
The Israel Group is vibrant and rapidly growing with a number of people within SPS who are concerned about the well-being of Israel.
The aims of the Group are:
To promote Israel within our Synagogue;
To make people aware of Israel's achievements;
To build a network of Israeli groups, especially within Liberal Judaism;
To give people the opportunity to be involved in wider Israeli events;
To be a forum for people's discussions and opinions.
Please contact us at the Synagogue office as above.
