Aliyot (Call-ups to the Torah)

During the Shul service, Rabbi Moss will ensure that your family receives at least 3 Aliyot and 3 additional honours: (1) Lifting the Torah; (2) Dressing the Torah, and (3) Opening the Ark. Where possible, more Aliyot may be available. 

It is customary for those who receive an Aliyah to make a donation to the Shul. This amount is at your discretion.

Please bring a bag or two of individually wrapped soft Kosher lollies to Shul if you would like the congregation to throw them at the Bar Mitzvah boy following his Aliyah.  

Sponsoring a Kiddush following the service

Your Kiddush must be Parev only - NO DAIRY AT ALL - supplied by a kosher approved caterer. 

You/your caterer must provide food, drinks and disposables for 100 ppl (Shabbos morning) or 20 ppl (Shabbos afternoon) + your guests. 

Everything for your Kiddush must be delivered to Shul the day before.  

On the day, your Kiddush will need to be setup inside Shul at the conclusion of the service.

We recommend you employ our kitchen helper. Please email [email protected] for her details.
