An email group for The City of Southend Jewish Community
Welcome to Southend Kehila – an independent email group, open to all Jewish Organisations and Individuals in the City of Southend and the area. It has a steering committee with representation from two of the Jewish Religious Organisations. It also has links to local Jewish charities and Jewish Care.
Its aim is to unite and help all Jews living in our wonderful Seaside City and the surrounding area. It offers the whole Community an easy-to-use resource.
To provide a central source of information for all activities, events and classes which are open to everyone regardless of affiliation. There is no advertising of religious services, education or discussions.
For getting or providing help to contributors, for example: needing a lift to London, selling or giving away something, or seeking a recommendation for a service like a plumber. But only third-party recommendations are permitted.
Commercial advertising is not permitted although limited advertising by shops selling kosher products is permitted.
To reporting news which affects our Community, especially on security matters.
With the exception of local Jewish charities, general, fundraising is not permitted but sponsored challenges with targets lower than £1,000, with funds collected through an independent source is permitted. Also permitted are Zoom presentations and interviews provided fundraising only features after registration.
Political posts are not permitted, neither is Southend Kehila a “chat room” for that and similar matters.
The service is free and open to all Jews in the area regardless of any organisation to which they are affiliated.
Rules for the benefit of everyone
Keep it friendly keep it polite.
Any organisation or individual advertising an event which includes food is expected to adhere to a level of kashrus. Anyone attending an event who is unsure of the level of kashrus should check directly with the organiser.
No events that break the laws of Shabbat or Yom Tov may be advertised.
The use of the term “City of Southend Communal or Community event” can only be used on this site where it genuinely reflects a collaborative effort involving at least two of the Southend Jewish organisations.
For the benefit of everyone, all posts are moderated (reviewed before released).
