FOOD ALLERGIES

Now that more children are coming to shul and enjoying the children’s services, we thought we should remind you that some children are sensitive to some food products and you need to be very careful about any sweets or snacks that you bring to shul.  If in doubt please leave at home.

If your child has any allergies, it would be helpful if you notified us and also the children’s service leaders and we’ll do our best to control things although we can’t watch all of the children, all of the time, so you need to take care please.
