Meet The Author – Adele Franklin

Tuesday March 31

Adele is a 59-year-old retired Chartered Librarian; she spent her professional life working with young people trying to foster in them a love of literature and provide for them a safe space in which they could flourish and grow.

Reading and writing have always been a huge part of her life and having given up work, she joined Hillingdon U3A and their Creative Writing Group, which she now runs.

She describes her style as quirky and runs the gamut from autobiographical pieces, to science fiction, humour to plays and murderous tales!

Join us at 3.00 pm when Adele will talk about her short story collection – with tea  and cake!   £5 per person

Please book via the Mosaic website or through the Mosaic office.

Contemplative Service

Friday March 06

We invite everyone to join us at 7.00 pm for Kabbalat Shabbat – our contemplative Friday Night service which invites us to leave behind the busy-ness of the week and experience the precious gift of peace (shalom), rest (menucha) and renewal (nafash) that Shabbat offers. Here is a space for quiet reflection, personal prayer, music to lift the spirit (ruach) and heart-warming translations of new and familiar prayers that help us worship in a meaningful way. If you are not familiar with Hebrew, you will find the prayers have been transliterated so you can easily follow along.  We look forward to sharing this time with you. Kabbalat Shabbat replaces the regular Liberal Friday night service this evening.

A Second Chance

Tuesday March 10

Mosaic Jewish Community Proudly presents at 7.30 pm ‘A Second Chance’ followed by Questions To Rex Bloomstein (film director) and Darren Burns (head of Prisoner Rehabilitation Programme)

Timpson, the shoe repair, key cutting and film processing company, helps prisoners inside prison learn a new skill, in preparation for their release.  Many of the trainees gain employment at Timpson on release and the Timpson Foundation employs  over 500 former prisoners in their shops and related roles. The Foundation has recently had a film shot, showing the lives of 6, now former prisoners, who went through the training scheme and all started careers on release at Timpson.  We are privileged to be allowed to show the film.  We will then be able to pose questions to Rex,and to Darren Burns. The film is gripping and shows what real help can do, to help others, help themselves and stop re-offending. There is no charge for the evening but we invite Donations towards the Timpson Foundation.
