Who is it for?

Beit HaLimmud is a Shabbat morning service for those who like to daven in a welcoming, really friendly minyan where services are conducted at a reasonable pace, and led by one of our own. The decorum is superb as there is no talking. Rabbi Gavriel Tatz gives a brief but stimulating shiur at 08.00. Shacharit starts at 08.10. There’s always a good chance of an aliya too! Following the service there is a ‘sit-down’ whiskey Kiddush with some more words of inspiration from Rabbi Tatz. The whole experience is uplifting and beautiful in its simplicity and sincerity.

Where and when is it held?

Shabbat morning Services are held in the Paul Waterman Youth Centre in the large classrooms downstairs. Come to the 10 minute shiur at 8.00. Shacharit commences at 8.10.

About the service

This is a beautiful ‘no-rush’ intimate service with excellent decorum conducted by lay-readers.  There’s opportunity to participate if you wish.

It is traditional to celebrate Succot with a Simchat Beit Hashoeva. done with great joy and happiness, with singing and dancing. This was called when sacrifices were offered in the Temple, there was also a special pouring of wine and oil at the altar. On Succot there was a special ceremony entailing the pouring of water. The water was drawn the night beforehand from the Shiloach spring, and this was "Simchat Beit Hashoeva" (the joy of the drawing). Today's Simchat Beit Hashoeva is a commemoration of that one, and a fulfilment of the mitzvah to be happy on Succot.
