Children & Youth Services
WPS Youth Services
We are delighted to confirm that WPS Youth Services will be starting up again from this Shabbat, 5th December.
Please register to attend via https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YS5KG8D - we've set up bookings for all Shabbatot between now and 16th January and will let you know prior to each Shabbat if you have a seat.
All services will be full Shabbat services including Shacharit (from Shochen Ad) and Musaf, leining, prayers for the Queen and Israel and Divrei Torah. You are welcome to book one week, some weeks or every week. While seats are limited, due to social distancing rules, we hope to be able to give everyone a seat for each Shabbat they wish to attend. In the exceptional weeks where we are oversubscribed, we will allocate seats fairly.
Services will take place in the first floor of the Community Centre and be from 10am to 12 noon. Please attend at the start time, especially boys as we need a minyan to start. Please bring your own siddur if you have one; we will not have any to give you.
Please note that face coverings must be worn at all times while on the premises so you must bring your own mask. Please also bring your own tissues to shul in case you need to cough or sneeze; please take any used tissues away with you. It should also be noted that we will need to keep the windows and doors open for ventilation purposes and therefore the room temperature may feel cold. Therefore you may wish to wear warm clothing should the weather be inclement.
If you or anyone you have been in contact with show any symptoms of Coronavirus or are in self-isolation or quarantine you must not attend. If you can, please email to inform us. It is important that you read the Covid Guidelines Please click here for Attending Youth Services, including the final paragraph in bold.
We look forward to seeing you in shul!
With best wishes,

Only those booked to attend the Children’s Service will be admitted
All children must sit with an adult from their household throughout the Children’s Service
There is a maximum limit of 2 children per adult
You and your children will be seated at a table, 2m away from other members
Parents are responsible to ensure their children do not leave their seat (we ask parents to use their own judgement as to whether their child will be able to sit for the service before booking)
There will be no Kiddush and food/drink cannot be consumed on site
Unfortunately, it will not be possible to stay, or to attend a main service
Bookings will open on the Sunday prior to the Shabbat service via https://myus.theus.org.uk/events/62993/wps-children-s-services/
When applying to a Jewish school or nursery under the religious authority of the Office of the Chief Rabbi, you will need to have completed a CRP form. A copy must be sent directly to the school or nursery together with relevant supporting documents and the school’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF). Please check the admissions pages of the school you are applying for.
The process has been updated this year in light of the pandemic and all details regarding what is required can be found on the US website FAQ’s www.theus.org.uk/crp and the accompanying information film on US.tv www.TheUS.tv/crp2021. Here you will find details about how to collect points from shul attendance and online kabbalat services amongst other available options.
To collect points from attendance at Woodside Park Synagogue services, firstly, please click on the following link and self-register on the US CRP online system: http://myus.theus.org.uk/crp-application
You will then need to register to attend each of our Children’s Services, details above. Unfortunately due to Covid-related restrictions, we can only house limited numbers each week and must insist that a parent or guardian attends and sits with their child.
We look forward to welcoming you back to shul!
