SHABBAT BEHAR-BECHUKOTAI - 26 Iyar

Current provincial regulations allow for a maximum of ten people at religious services. However, due to the continuing high rate of Covid spread in London and across the province, we will take the extra precaution of davening outside. Because of the limitation of ten per service, pre-reservation with the Rabbi is required. (rabbi@gmail.com 519 694-7708.) If you reserve, please do your utmost to attend because your presence will comprise the Minyan. The front door will be locked. Please come around to the back patio for services. Sidurim, Chumashim, masks, and hand sanitizers will be available on the back patio.

Sunday School will continue to meet remotely for the time being.

No Kiddush until further notice
