Weekly Services

Shabbat Services

Our service is a lovely Sephardi Liturgy, with the sounds of the traditional tunes of the Rhodes community, and Sephardi minhagim (customs). On Friday night we enjoy a lively service mixing traditional and some modern tunes. A delicious and social Kiddush follows each Shabbat morning service.

Mincha, Kabbalat Shabbat & Arvit times are indicated weekly as they vary throughout the year. Shachrit begins at 8:30am until around 11:00am, after which we enjoy a lively communal Kiddush.

We call to the Torah and allocate other honours during the service to members, guests and visitors marking special occasions.

Our friendly Gabbai looks after these arrangements, working with the Rabbi and Hazzan and Executive. We announce and celebrate or commemorate each occasion from the Bimah. The Rabbi gives an informative and engaging sermon each week, and if we are marking a lifecycle event, such as a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, he addresses his remarks to the celebration and the family.

We’d love to have you join us for Shabbat.
