Sixth Test Shabbat in Stanmore
We are delighted to announce that we will be holding another test service in the new building in Stanmore Hill this Shabbat 7th January. The service will start at 09.45 and we will all have a joint kiddish with the other 2 communities at around 12.15. Whilst the building is not yet fully furnished, we will welcome any feedback from congregants to help us on our way to settling in.
Malts and Megillahs – Book now!
As previously advertised, on Thursday 12th January we will be hosting a whisky tasting to raise funds for the restoration of our beautiful megillah. £25 per person. Book by clicking on the link below.
David Ross will be celebrating his 70th birthday at a special kiddish on Shabbat 14th January and would be delighted if many from the community could join with him and Gill on this special occasion.
On Wednesday 18th of January, and thereafter on a weekly basis during (roughly) school terms, Rabbi Anthony will be teaching a Talmud class. This is accessible to all, whatever your previous experience of Jewish learning, and texts will be provided in translation. All very welcome as we begin our learning in Masekhet Sotah with the burning question what do you do with a jealous husband?!
