- Every single person we do business with is the child of an exceptionally important person.

Introducing your Kesher Network
Whitefield’s newly re-formed welfare committee, Kesher Connect.
Kesher means connection in Hebrew. We aim to ensure that every Shul member feels connected to the wider Whitefield community.
Kesher Connect is here for all our members.
If you, or someone you know, needs support we have volunteers ready to help. For more information see our Kesher Connect page
Both during the pandemic and in normal times, a number of members have difficulty getting out, or need to isolate.
This can be for a variety or reasons, whether its health or age related.
Can you pop to the shops?
Could you pop in to say Hello?
A friendly face and an open door
is a great way to welcome an individual or a family who are thinking of joining WHC.
Whether its sitting down for a chat over coffee to share the “inside track’ about Whitefield, or hosting new members over a Friday night Shabbat meal…
...is this the TEAM for YOU?
Visiting /Telephone Befriending / Meal delivery
Assistance is required in visiting members who have unfortunately become unwell and ensure they are not forgotten.
To help people with their household or religious needs who cannot manage on their own please get in touch.
Thanks to our many dedicated “minyan makers”, the shul successfully held Morning, Afternoon and Evening prayers each day throughout the challenging Covid period (when the shul was permitted to open).
Please consider joining our rota, just commit one service a week!
In a large community everyone assumes someone else is stepping in, the result is... no-one does!
We also need people who can lead prayers in shiva houses.
The in-person Shabbat Kiddush is making a comeback !
Post-pandemic regulations mean we need to organise Kiddushim differently.
Ensuring Covid-safety will take many more hands.
Everyone loves a great Kiddush... so join our teams !
Youth Centre - Help us Re-open
The success of our Youth Centre for the past 20 years has been through a succession of parent volunteers.
You - the community members - have made that success.
The end of lockdown means we can now re-open.
If you have young children of primary school age, get involved and help us build on that past success AGAIN !
NEWLETTER & PR TEAM

keep the programme running smoothly

Shemira (watching over the departed)
This simple task is of great comfort to a bereaved family.
It just involves staying with the deceased (for a few hours in a rota) until the funeral.
WHC member Lucy is our volunteer Shemira coordinator, and she will be happy to tell you more...
