Conversion to to Judaism
Our Rabbis run regular Access to Judaism courses which are part of the preparation for conversion, but are often also attended by those who want to learn more about their Jewish heritage. Please enquire for the starting date of the next course at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Erev Shabbat and Shabbat Services are often lead or organised by members. Festival meals and events are run by volunteers from the community. Other community members are involved in organising after service speakers, editing the newsletter, sending out the weekly e-news, responding to enquiries and maintaining this website.
BKY is managed by a Council whose members are appointed at the community AGM. Council meetings are open to all members who wish to attend. The dates of Council meetings can be found on the BKY calendar.
