Aliyot (Call-ups to the Torah)

During the Shul service, Rabbi Moss will ensure that your family receives 3 Aliyot. Rabbi Moss will also aim to provide your family with 3 additional honours: (1) Lifting the Torah; (2) Dressing the Torah; and (3) Opening the Ark, however these are not guaranteed.

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 chewy Kosher lollies to Shul if you would like the congregation to throw them at the groom following his Aliyah.


Sponsoring a Kiddush following the service

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

You/your caterer must provide food, drinks and disposables for 120 ppl (Shabbos morning) or 40 ppl (Shabbos afternoon) + your guests. 

For Shabbos afternoon Call Ups, some challah or bread rolls must be served for HaMotzi.   

Everything for your kiddush can be delivered to Shul the day before.  

On the day

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

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