MINYAN

 

Daily Minyan:

Depends on how many locals and visitors are on the island. During the month of January, we most likely will have a minyan. If you are visiting with a large group (or even a small one), we will do our best to make the Minyan happen!

Friday Night: 

Kabbalat Shabbat 6:30 followed by dinner. 

Shabbat morning services:

10:00 - 11:30 AM followed by a delicious buffet Kiddush.

For questions about the Minyan, find out the times for weekday Mincha/Marriv or if you need to say Kaddish, please contact the Rabbi.

MIKVAH

 

Currently, there is no mikvah on island. However, should you need to use the mikvah during your stay please contact Mrs. Sternie Super at sternie@chabadsl.com. 

For more information about the laws of Mikvah please visit  www.mikvah.org

To donate towards the building of the first Mikvah in S. Lucia please click here.

Our sages teach us that the building of a Mikvah is even more vital to the spiritual continuity of the Jewish people than the building of a Shul. Indeed, Torah scrolls should be sold to fulfill this mitzvah.

 

 

IS THERE A JEWISH COMMUNITY IN S. LUCIA?

Yes! The island is blessed with a small and growing, diverse Jewish community.

 

 

CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS 

 

We have a Hebrew School on island every Wednesday, for more info or to enroll please contact us.

Whether you are just visiting or you are a local resident, all children are welcome to our Hebrew school.
