Mazel Tov to Johanna Marx and Norman Vinacour who celebrate their Birthdays this week.
Forty eight members and visitors filled the Girl Guide Headquarters for the Hebrew name blessing last week for Phoebe Ellison with Rabbi Arberman there to perform the mitzvah. We wish Phoebe well with her new name which is after her great grandmother who passed away recently.
New Year and New Council appointees: AGM time is fast approaching on Sunday May 22nd. Whilst one or two faces may be standing down, there are proposals for two well-known faces to re-stand after having been off Council. Whilst we are so appreciative of their interest in the community, we wonder if some other faces might put themselves forward? Do not be shy. Just advise Neil or Edwin if you would like to know more. It is not onerous – or need not be and can be great fun.
PESACH: We are looking at stories about seder nights, and Pesach in general, such as the one that Sam Charkham told us about Afikomen bargaining some years ago. Please drop Edwin an email via firstname.lastname@example.org, so he can prepare something well in advance.
