with Rabbi Schochet
Shabbat Afternoons after Mincha
Men & Women welcome
If you are able to lend a helping hand for an hour or so once every 8-9 weeks on a Shabbat morning, we are looking to increase our team of volunteers to help set out the Community Kiddush which takes place each week after the main service.
Following the judgment in the Supreme Court Jewish schools have to adopt a religious practice test for admissions.
Some schools will be asking you to complete a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP), which includes verification of synagogue attendance.
You should check the websites of the schools in which you are interested to see their specific requirements, but many are looking for attendance at synagogue.
Entry to Jewish Schools September 2020
Once again we are putting procedures in place to help those wishing to apply to attend Jewish Schools in September 2020 to obtain a Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP).
The date that eligibility for attendance at synagogue services commences is
4th May 2019.
If you wish to have your child’s attendance at synagogue recorded so that we can verify attendance for the CRP, you need to apply to join the attendance register no later than
Monday 29th April 2019.
We are therefore asking that everyone, whether a member or not, who wishes to have their child’s attendance at Mill Hill Synagogue verified for school admissions purposes, register with us. Please note that if your child has not registered we will not be able to assist with a CRP.

We were delighted that so many children registered with us last year. We are expecting a large number again this year, so please ensure that you register with plenty of time.
To further enable you to collect points this year we are launching an exciting new CRP Points Programme. Alongside some special Shabbat morning children services, the programme includes volunteering and learning opportunities, as well as family Kabbalat Shabbatot.
If you have any questions, please email us at:
or call Gerry Shaer on 0208 959 1137 extension 3.
