Pre-Shmini Atzeret “Abridged Yizkor Service” - LIVEThursday  8 Oct. at 8pm

From the President 

Dear fellow congregant member,

Thank you for the complimentary communications that we have received for the gift packs and the 4 broadcast “Connection” services over the high holydays watched by over 10,000 people on YouTube and Facebook.

I am pleased to report that we have received early enrollment responses to our emailed initiative this week to conduct outdoor on-site compliant Sukkot services for a very limited number of members. 

Please note that we are now seeking to finalize all remaining membership/seat holder accounts. 

To that end, a final notice has been issued this week requiring settlement including where applicable, an approved payment plan on or before the 12 October 2020. 

This process will ensure that we can finalize our membership list and also prepare an accurate financial forecast and budget for the balance of the 20/21 financial year. 

Wishing all members a Chag Sameach over Sukkot.

David Mond

A  message from the President

As our members are aware, due to overriding health protection considerations, the Board has been extremely conservative in recommencing synagogue services. We have been  focusing on building the requisite expertise to deliver services through a functional system that balances the need for synagogue services against the framework of a compliant governance process.

We delivered on 4 bar mitzvah synagogue events and last week resumed main synagogue Shabbat services.

Sadly, despite our desire to expand services further this Shabbat,  we find ourselves once again in lockdown.

Let’s pray that the situation will soon take a turn for the better so we may return to the days of old, with active engagement and full synagogue services.

We will nevertheless continue to provide remotely, interesting programs and other  services to keep our engagement with members and friends.

Shabbat Shalom


David Mond


Special  message from the President


Dear Congregant Members

Due to the speculation surrounding daily services/ minyonim, I wish to confirm that the CHC has no plans to reopen for services under the present state of emergency laws and regulatory regime.

Each synagogue will no doubt make their own decisions on this issue based on their particular circumstances and risk assessment.

The Board together with Rabbi Genende of the CHC has independently adopted a risk averse approach to all decisions relating to our congregant members.

Should the circumstances change, we will of course reassess our position.

Regards and please stay safe
David Mond
