The Office of the Chief Rabbi has produced an Order of Service for our shuls to use this Shabbat to mark the coronation. It includes a new prayer for the Monarch composed by the Chief Rabbi and an update to the Prayer for the Royal Family to reflect the new wording for the Queen which now reads ‘Our Gracious Queen Camilla’. You can read the order of service here.

The Chief Rabbi and Lady Mirvis spoke with the King yesterday at a Garden Party in Buckingham Palace. They mentioned to him that our communities would be reciting special prayers for the new King and Queen in shuls across the country and that the United Synagogue had commissioned a new version of Adon Olam. The King was moved and conveyed his heartfelt thanks and Michael Goldstein, President of United Synagogue was pleased to pass that message on today.
