School Points

 

Collecting School (CRP) Points at FRS

We are pleased to welcome you in person to our services in order to collect CRP (Certificate of Religious Practice) points for admission to a Jewish day school.  Please remember that every school has different requirements, so do check the admissions pages for any and all schools to which you wish to apply.  (Please do not email us asking about individual schools; if you're not sure, call the school.)

One in-person visit per Shabbat will count towards your CRP points. You can attend either a Friday service (Kuddle Up Shabbat at 4.15pm or Kabbalat Shabbat at 6.30pm) OR a Saturday morning service at 10.30am, but if you attend twice on one weekend, it will only count as one visit.  Festival and Chaggim services do not count towards CRP points.

If your preferred school allows volunteering to go towards points, FRS Members can also give their time to TEAM FRS.  We have many volunteering opportunities to enhance life at the synagogue and support our members.  Click here to find out more.

Please note that FRS no longer signs for online visits to services. If this is a problem for you because you or your child are physically unable to get to the synagogue, please email rachel.fidler@frs.org.uk.

FRS services eligible for points

  • Kuddle Up Shabbat, our service for pre-schoolers, takes place every Friday at 4.15pm and is full of songs and stories - the perfect way to welcome Shabbat.

  • Kabbalat Shabbat takes place every Friday evening at 6.30pm – a lovely, accessible hour-long  service, full of beautiful tunes; a lovely way to welcome Shabbat for families with older children.

  • Rhythm ‘n’ Jews (R'n'J) services are musical services with our very own RnJ Band, for families with children up to Year 6, and their parents and grandparents!

  • Shacharit is our formal Shabbat morning service which often contains life cycle celebrations, starting at 10.30am.  We do not run children’s services every Shabbat concurrently with Shacharit.
