Mosaic Masorti News

Talmud class
The Talmud class continues with Rabbi Anthony on Thursdays at 8.00 pm on a weekly basis during (roughly) school terms. This is accessible to all, whatever your previous experience of Jewish learning, and texts will be provided in translation. All members are very welcome as we begin our learning in Masekhet Sotah with the burning question what do you do with a jealous husband?!  The class is also available via Zoom:  Meeting ID: 882 4650 1121

Thursday 16th March – Gin Tasting
We will be having the Mosaic Masorti fund raiser to fund the refurbishment of our bequeathed Megillah with a Gin tasting, 8PM @ Stanmore Hill. Following our successful whisky tasting in January, come and taste a number of luxury, boutique gins (with tonic). Ticketing details are on the website.  I am told that despite the contributor’s love of Palwin that there will not be  a Palwin tasting fund raiser ever.  All ideas for fund raising are welcome.

Saturday 25th March Second Barmitzvah
We are delighted to announce that Michael Harris will be celebrating his second barmitzvah.  This will be a shehechyonu occasion for Michael and for the shul too, so come along and support Michael.

Saturday 15th April
This is our first timers’ Shabbas In Stanmore.  If you have not received a call yet, be prepared for a call from Gillian Lucas or Traci Spivack.  We want to involve as many congregant families as we can. Do not be shy and give it a try.   Join in, in the wonderful atmosphere, which will be oozing out and there will be lots of knelling. We have contributors from ages 2 – 103. You must fit into that age group so drop Gillian  or Traci a line if we have missed you out or if you can now manage it and previously said no. We want you on board.

Yom Masorti is back! Mark your diaries or electronic devices for, Sunday 14th May.  It is going to be an uplifting afternoon of celebration and conversation with the whole of the Masorti community.  Register your interest in joining here to be the first to hear more and know when tickets go on sale.
