SUKKOT, SHEMINI ATZERET, AND SIMCHAT TORAH
Kol Nefesh is running in-person services for Sukkot, Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah in a Covid-friendly format. These are open to members and visitors via a booking app, so that we are able contact attendees in case of any COVID cases. The booking app can be found here, and is the same one we use on Shabbat.

On Simchat Torah this year, we'll be reintroducing an old tradition by celebrating a Kallat Torah and Kallat Bereishit. We've chosen to honour two people who have recently joined Kol Nefesh, and who have already made substantial contributions to our community, and particularly to our leyening on Shabbat mornings during this period of reduced in-person attendance due to the pandemic: Maya Brooks and Siobhan (Shibby) Allen. Please join us on Simchat Torah morning to celebrate with Maya and Shibby, as we mark the end of this Torah reading cycle and begin afresh.
The Chatan/Kallat Torah/Bereshit is an ancient tradition to honour those who are called up for the last and first aliyot of the annual Torah reading cycle.
We look forward to seeing you!
