Dear Shul Member,

 Further to the governments’ statement that Shuls will be allowed to open with conditions, from this Shabbos 12 Tammuz/4 July, we have reopened the shul Minyonim while keeping within the guidelines.

The government guidelines require a minimum social distancing of 2m between households in the Shul, as such, spaces in the shul will be much more limited than before the lock-down.  

We are open with a PRE-BOOKING system, so that we can know WHO & how many from each household will be attending each Minyan. ONLY people who have received back a confirmation will be on the list for the security guard to be allowed into the building.

We are currently having Minyonim for men ONLY,  We look forward to being able to invite women back to Shul and then children in the future as well.

The tables and chairs will be set for each ‘household’ which has booked for THAT Davening, you WILL be required to sit at your designated place.

Preference for attending will be allocated in the following order.

  1. PAYING members
    Yortzite
    Birthday
    Everyone else
  2. Regular members
    Yortzite
    Birthday
    Everyone else
  3. Everyone else
    Yortzite
    Birthday

  4. Please fill in this short survey, separately for each member of your family www.loe.org.uk/return so that we can know how many people would be coming from your family. Only those who have filled in the survey will be considered when arranging who can come.

If you wish to attend, you MUST register by emailing: shul@loe.org.uk for the Davenings you are interested in attending after filling in the survey www.loe.org.uk/return

PEOPLE WHO ARE SYMPTOMATIC

Anyone showing symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell) should not attend the Shul due to the risk that they pose to others; they should self-isolate at home immediately with other members of their household.

Please notify us A.S.A.P if you become unwell so we can advise others who came to your Minyan to self isolate.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon
