Request for Men to join the Leyning Rota 

To enable greater participation from our members, the wardens would like to invite any men who might be interested in leyning. This could perhaps be their Bar Mitzvah Sedra or they could learn a new one?

Alternatively if you know anyone who would be interested, please could you let the wardens know.

Service buddies

We have a service buddy arrangement at Woodside Park to help with following and understanding the Shabbat service.


This will include finding your place in the siddur on arrival in shul and throughout the service, when to stand and why, in fact anything you would like to know about the workings of the service. We will pair you with a buddy who will sit next to you and help you find your way around. This arrangement will be entirely confidential.


If you interested in this, including acting as a buddy, please contact the shul office by telephone: 020 8445 4236 or email
