Online Bulletin Changes

In respect of the increasing concern for the privacy of our members, we will be reducing the amount of personal information published in the version of our bulletin that appears online. For full names in ‘mazel tov’, condolence, and other announcements, please pick up a copy of our print bulletin in the Sanctuary during Shabbat services, or on the table outside the office during the remainder of the week.
We will continue to email bereavement notices to members on our mailing list.

Thank you for your understanding.
