AUCTION OF PROMISES: Thank you to everyone who has notified us about ‘a promise’ for the HEMS 2016 Auction of Promises on Sunday 4th September. If you would like to make an offer please email the office with this. Here are a few ideas: a workshop, an offer of food, vouchers for a night out or any unwanted gifts. Your promises are much appreciated – with our costs increasing year on year we remain dependent on fundraising to balance the books.
HEMS BBQ: The rain kept away and the sun, as one says, shines on the righteous. 31 righteous people enjoyed a wonderful, convivial afternoon, at the HEMS BBQ which was hosted by Marvyn and Helen Ellison. The age group spanned from 3 – 4 score year and 14. The catering was excellent and thanks to all the salad and dessert makers who rose to the challenge of making this a special afternoon.
ROTA AVAILABILITY: We are now in the process of compiling the next batch of rotas, to incorporate all the High Holy Days and beyond till January 2017, and an email has been sent out asking if you know of any dates you are not available. Please can you will this in and return to the office as we are keen to minimise swaps and save you time, so you can enjoy the summer sunshine. Thank you.
RABBI JEREMY COLLICK: Many of our congregants know Rabbi Collick from Edgware Masorti Synagogue. He is currently not at all well and is awaiting surgery. If you have time to visit or send an email to him, he would be most appreciative and can be contacted on this email address.
