The robe and stole royal – Part of the order of the Service

Charles’s eldest son, the heir to the throne, the Prince of Wales enters the theatre.

The stole royal – a golden priestly scarf – and the robe royal – a long cloak – are brought to the King.

The Bishop of Durham puts the stole royal over the King’s shoulders.

William, Baroness Merron, who served as the Board of Deputies of British Jews’ chief executive, and bishops clothe the King in the robe royal.

The archbishop says: “Receive this robe. May the Lord clothe you with the robe of righteousness, and with the garments of salvation.”

Quote by Baroness Gillian Merron

“This is an honour beyond anything I could ever have imagined. I feel humbled to be making history in a Coronation ceremony that will validate Britain as a ‘community of communities’. 

In his Coronation, HRH King Charles III will demonstrate his commitment to protect the space for faith and its practise through religions, cultures, traditions and beliefs.

Through my part in this, I hope to do the Jewish community proud.”

Our latest proselyte, Hannah

On March 14th 2020 our latest proselyte, Hannah, was formally admitted to Judaism by Rabbi David Hulbert. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic no where near the number of people who normally attend were in able to witness this huge event in Hannah’s life. None the less, Hannah was joined by her parents and members of the congregation  were delighted to witness Hannah’s formal admission. Geoff our Chair gave Hannah a small gift as is our practice, from the congregation to mark this special event in Hannah’s life.
