Shanah Tovah to all celebrating Rosh Hashanah from this evening.
We know celebrations within our Jewish community will look a little different this time, and we want to thank you for following guidance on social distancing, washing hands and wearing a mask.
Please do follow the guidance to keep your family and your community safe.
The government has set out a checklist for High Holy Day services and gatherings, including how many people you can meet at home and in other settings.
There are rules at synagogue, including that you must socially distance from people you do not live with. Please do read the checklist.
Here’s Rabbi Sandra Kviat, of Crouch End Chavurah, with a message on celebrating Rosh Hashanah safely this weekend.

If you feel that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected your alcohol intake, you won’t be the only one. A Royal College of Psychiatrists survey found that in June, more than 8.4m people in England were drinking at higher-risk levels, significantly higher than the 4.8m reported in February before the lockdown.
The alcohol support charity Drinkcoach was founded in Haringey. It offers an online test for you to check your drinking level; if you are drinking at higher risk levels, you can sign up to receive Skype sessions to discuss your alcohol use and address any problems.
Once you complete the questionnaire and receive your score, you can then download an app and access online appointments to discuss your alcohol intake or gain support for reducing your alcohol consumption. You can take the test here.
