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 kwelling. 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.
