The Role of Women - As of December 2014

The current situation is balanced across a number of different services.
In the main prayer space, on Shabbat and Festivals, the service is led, the Torah is read and Aliyot are given only to men. Seating is separate.
There is a monthly egalitarian, mixed seating participative service held in the Hall – the Minyan Chadash, which also meets on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

On Sundays and for weekday Rosh Chodesh services, the service is egalitarian.

For a Bar, or Bat, Mitzvah, if a certain threshold of engagement in the community is met, the family can request an egalitarian service in the main prayer space, with mixed seating. On such an occasion a non-egalitarian service is held in the Hall.
