Message & Video from the CST
By the time you get this message, we will surely have passed 700 antisemitic incidents reported to CST these past 18 days: this compares to 803 in the first six months of this year.
So far, they are mainly not violent, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t deeply upsetting. It takes a very sick antisemite to scrawl Hitler moustaches on photos of children kidnapped by Hamas, as sent to us this morning from hostage posters on Finchley Road, London. Am Yisrael Chai,
Magen David Adom is being helped by a fundraising lunch, as you will have read earlier in the bulletin at 12.30 on Thursday 23rd November. We would like volunteers to assist with a number of schlepping activities:-
- Table erecting
- Table positioning
- Table laying
- Serving the delights on offer
- Clearing away anything that might be left – unlikely
- Taking down tables.
It will be great fun and a lunch with a difference. Come and join the team and be a supporter of the event and a supporter of the work MDA is doing to help those who are in need and need our support.
In the wee hours of this coming Sunday morning, the clocks will move back by 3,600 seconds. What are you planning to do with all these extra seconds? How about preparing a dvar for the future and telling Rabbi Anthony, on his return from the deep South – of the UK, that you would like to try something new? We like it to be around 7 minutes duration and if it relates to the week’s sedra, that is wonderful. If it does not directly relate, there will be messages from the sedra that you can relate to. Make use of your 3,600 seconds and in next week’s bulletin, we will give you ideas to work on for the next time this happens.
Sunday 19th November
Remember to remember the 19th November and our fallen heroes of years gone by in the UK, Europe and the Globe at large. Come and join members of Mosaic who show off their relative’s war medals, which were awarded following earlier conflicts. It is a wonderful uplifting occasion and war veterans join in unison with their children, grandchildren and great children, honouring the courage of their earlier days in the form of relatives and friends.
The latest edition of Kehila has been published and should have fallen on your doorsteps or will do in the coming days. How would you like to write an article. If you want help in formulating a good article, there are lots of people who would be willing to assist you and you could even look at having a regular KC. That translates to Kehila Column as opposed to Knight Commander.
The MJC weekly bulletin is packed with information with what has happened, is happening and is going to happen. Have a look at the photos and the icons and try out new things. Bridge, scrabble, Men’s group, Singing, drawing and painting all come to mind, as well as engaging with our in-house team of Rabbis. There are 4 to be with and to interact with and bounce ideas off, on a regular basis. There are regular rabbinical events on Wednesdays, Thursdays and of course Shabbats too. Come and join us in one of 3 services which always end up with a splendid kiddush.
