Yom Tov to all our Jewish students

Filed under: Colchester, Loughton, News, Southend, What's on — Communications, CER @ 4.04 pm

Yom Kippur, is the holiest day of the year for our Jewish students and starts at dusk on Tuesday 8 October, until after nightfall on Wednesday 9 October. If you’re unable to attend any teaching event because of religious observances, like Yom Kippur, we understand.

Information for students on the Colchester campus

The postcode of the nearest synagogue to the campus is CO1 2QG.  The easiest route for most students is to take the 62 bus to the top of East Hill (ask for the Castle or Hollytrees Museum) then walk down the hill and take a right-hand turn into Priory Street. Fennings Chase is a short distance on your left.

The Kol Nidre service starts at 6.30pm on Tuesday 8 October and there are services on Wednesday 9 October at 9.30am to 1.00pm and 4.30 to 8pm.
