Support Services


  • Hospital and home visits when required.
  • General advice by a telephone call to housebound and lonely.
  • Light shopping where possible.

If you or a relative or friend is ill and a phone call or a visit is needed please contact the synagogue.

It is very important if someone is in hospital and needs a visit that you let us know as the hospital
authorities are not allowed to tell us about Jewish patients.

Requests for hospital or home visits and general advice should be made to the synagogue telephone
number. Leave your name and number and the shul welfare officer or the Rabbi will contact you.
