Services at NNLS

You are welcome to join us in any of our services.

We have weekday, Shabbat and Festival prayers; we have traditional, as well as traditional egalitarian services. Within the NNLS spirit of pluralism and diversity, our members are offered a rich variety of services which embrace different minhagim (customs) of prayer. It is not uncommon for three different services (Traditional, Hakol Olin and Assif) to be running concurrently.

Our services follow a traditional liturgy, rooted in the love of traditional melodies. We try to create an atmosphere which is welcoming and relaxed, focussed and participative. Children are welcome, and we hold special services for them as well.

* While Covid-19 precautions are in place, the Friday night minhag aims to encourage people to attend an in-person Friday night service at which the community can be together. Men lead minchah and ma'ariv; a woman or man can lead Kabbalat Shabbat.  Seating is in three sections: men on one side, women on the other, mixed seating across the centre. 

** Zoom links can be found in Shalom NNLS emails.

Midweek Shacharit at NNLS

Shacharit services are held on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings and are an integral part of our synagogue’s activities.

On Sunday and Monday the minyan is traditional.  On Wednesday and Thursday it is traditional with an egalitarian Torah reading (Torah egalitarian) whenever there is a Torah service on that day, and on Tuesday it is egalitarian. Shacharit is also Torah egalitarian at all services that fall on Rosh Chodesh.

Shacharit services usually start at the following times and take place on Zoom:
Sunday: 8.30am
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 7.30am
Thursday: 7.15am (in person and on Zoom)


Check our calendar for service times, and Shalom NNLS emails for Zoom links.
