Please read the following before booking:

Pre-Booking:
Due to the stringent level of social distancing that we are maintaining, we can have a maximum of 66 people in the main Shul. In keeping with Government guidelines we are also maintaining a list of attendees at every service. Therefore:

 

You must pre-book before attending services. Unfortunately, anyone who has not pre-booked will not be allowed entry into Shul.

Pre-booking must be done at least 24 hours before the service you wish to attend.

 

Pre-booking should ideally be done
online by clicking the link above,
or by phoning the Shul office during office hours
(Sun: 9:30am-12:30pm, Mon-Fri: 9:00am-1:00pm)
on 0161 740 4766.

Attendance:

We have done everything possible to minimise the risk of spreading the virus when we reopen. However, the risk of the spread of the virus can never fully be removed (in common with many other daily activities that we normally undertake) nor can we guarantee that our site is COVID-free. Please understand that it is your personal choice whether to attend services.

In line with current government guidance, the following groups of people should not attend services:

  • Those who are shielded (extremely medically vulnerable), according to the government’s definition.
  • Those who show any symptoms of COVID-19, who live with people with symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in contact with a confirmed case – all in the last fourteen days.
  • Those who have been asked to self-isolate by the government’s Track and Trace Programme.
  • Those who are in quarantine having travelled recently.
  • Older members (and certainly those over 70) should use their judgment to decide whether to attend services.
  • They should take into consideration the heightened potential risk to their health should they catch coronavirus.
  • Those who are clinically vulnerable should take medical advice as to whether to attend.
  • Those who live in the same household as people who are shielding should use their judgment as to whether to attend.

Safety in Shul:

  • From when you enter the Shul gate, please maintain at least 2m distance from anyone outside of your household. There are clear markings to help you do this.
  • Please follow the clearly marked one-way system.
  • Please sit in your designated seat only.
  • Please wear a face-covering at all times, inside the building. Children under the age of 11 should be encouraged to wear face coverings (particularly those aged over 7) but it is not compulsory.  Children over the age of 11 must wear face coverings.
  • Please bring your own siddur to weekday services.
  • Shul will only open 10 minutes before the service, please arrive on time.
  • Please use hand-sanitiser when entering the building.
  • There will be no communal singing.
