Key Feature

Rock Shabbat

Friday June 29

Join us for a different kind of Friday Night Service – the Mosaic Rock Shabbat!

Rabbis Kathleen and Frank will be joined by the 8 band members to provide a Friday night Shabbat experience that is just a little different to our usual service.

The service is aimed at everyone from age 5 to 105, if you are up for a different way to welcome in Shabbat.

7.30pm at Bessborough Road.

If you’re coming then it would help our logistics for the evening if you let us know

Contact us if you’d like to know more or have any questions.

 

There will be an earlier ‘normal’ Shabbat service at 6pm for those wanting a somewhat quieter environment.

MOSAIC COMMUNITY WELCOMES NITZANEY RISHON for a special Friday night

Friday July 06

Please join us at Bessborough Road for Friday night dinner at 6.00 pm on 6th July followed by Shabbat service and candle lighting. We will be entertaining 10 Israeli children with special needs, aged 8-18, along with their carers.

They all attend Nitzaney Rishon, a day centre in Rishon Lezion that provides education, counselling, physiotherapy and pet therapy for children unable to attend mainstream school. Trips and outings are arranged for the children regularly but what they most look forward to is spending a week abroad every 2 years. This year, for the first time, they will be in London and are very excited to be spending their Friday night with Mosaic.

Cost: £8.00 per adult, £5.00 per child.  Buy your tickets via our website or through the Mosaic office no later than 28th June.  Tickets must be bought in advance (for catering purposes) as they will not be available at the door.

What's On

“Less Shouting More Co-operation”

Sunday June 24

An enlightening talk & discussion on Parenting.  We are happy to welcome Rosalie Ajzensztejn to run a session at 10.00 am for Parents and Grandparents. Come along and enjoy light refreshments and an open discussion guided by her expertise.

Rosalie used to manage the London 24 hour helplines at Parentline, the UK’s largest parenting charity, for 10 years and is Senior Consultant for Calmer Easier Happier Parenting. The skills she teaches are respectful, friendly and  somewhat counter intuitive but put parents and grandparents back in charge, supporting children to be more co-operative, considerate and confident.  She will explain the skills for parents to have a practical tool kit so instead of resorting to repeating, reminding, nagging and eventual shouting (the children or you), you will actually find that home life becomes less stressful and far more enjoyable for all the family.

PLEASE JOIN US AND LET THE OFFICE KNOW IF YOU WILL ATTEND.

Contemplative Service

Friday July 06

We invite everyone to join us at 7.00 pm for Kabbalat Shabbat – our contemplative Friday Night service which invites us to leave behind the busy-ness of the week and experience the precious gift of peace (shalom), rest (menucha) and renewal (nafash) that Shabbat offers. Here is a space for quiet reflection, personal prayer, music to lift the spirit (ruach) and heart-warming translations of new and familiar prayers that help us worship in a meaningful way. If you are not familiar with Hebrew, you will find the prayers have been transliterated so you can easily follow along.  We look forward to sharing this time with you. Kabbalat Shabbat replaces the regular Liberal Friday night service this evening.
