Chairman's Report
SHALOM


We had a good 'turn out' from the members of Ne've Shalom at the Communal Remembrance Service at Pryme Street on 11 November 2018. It was also good to see one of our members, Andrew Percy MP, as one of the invited guests.

Our Treasurer, Aimi, has be able to draw down some funding from the CST to provide much needed security for Shul Services. In light of this, we now have appointed a security company for Ne've Shalom and a qualified security guard will be present at our Friday Night and Shabbat Morning Services. They will be patrolling the grounds and ensuring no untoward visitors gain access to the Shul. Humberside Police will also continue to be in the area during the Services.

The stone setting for the late Thelma Kelsey took place at Tranby Lane Cemetery on 25 November 2018. Thank you to Sarita for leading a moving service. 'Long life' to all the family and friends.

Also on Sunday 25 November 2018, in the afternoon, we dimmed the lights in the Shul Hall to watch the film "Sixty Six" in which Bernie Reuben's Barmitzvah clashes with the 1966 World Cup. We managed to fill over 25 seats and thanks go to Ian for been our projectionist and Aimi for acting as the usherette. Ian told me that he still has a large supply of travel clocks from his Barmitzvah in 1967, so please see him after Shul if you wish to purchase one! We have plans for another film show towards end of March 2019, so watch this space.

Ian led the Chanukah Service on Saturday 8 December 2018, after which we held a 'race evening' event. We had tremendous 'turn out' again and the winning team went home with the unforgettable prize and the losing team, the donkeys, went home with some carrots. Thank you to Ian for his hard work in preparing this event and providing the racing form and commentary each race. Thanks also go to Audrey and Aimi for the splendid food as well.

Don't forget that we continue to hold our Friday Night Services every week at 7.00pm and our Shabbat Morning Services at 10.30am on the first Saturday of the month.
Forthcoming Events
ANNUAL OPEN FRIDAY NIGHT
SERVICE



Following the huge success of previous Open Friday Night Services, the next one will take place on Friday 22 February 2019 starting at 7.00pm. What makes this Service different from the normal Friday Night service is the running commentary from those leading the Service explaining the nature of the prayers being recited, their background, origin and the traditional rituals being observed.

After the Service, and following the Brachot over the wine and bread, there will be the Kiddush with a wide range of "Jewish-style" foods. There also will be opportunity to look around the Synagogue, talk to those members present and examine the Ark, Scrolls and other artefacts.

If you wish to attend, can you please ring Audrey on 01482 563835, or e-mail hullreform@isa.karoo.co.uk giving your name and the number of people accompanying you, if any. This will help us with the catering.



School & Educational Visits
Ne've Shalom Synagogue is committed to educating the wider community about Judaism.


Each year over hundreds of pupils, students and adults come to learn some basic knowledge about Judaism. As part of the visit, they are shown Jewish artifacts and are taught about the traditions and rituals concerning our faith. We receive many compliments regarding the service that we offer and the schools and other institutions appear to enjoy the time spent this way.

Many groups return every year, so it is proving to be a popular event in the curriculum. We cater for all age groups from Primary to Secondary to Higher Education, adapting the programme to suit.

Although there is no charge, as all the guides are willing volunteers, we are always grateful for a discretionary donation to cover the costs of running the Synagogue.

For further information or to book a visit please contact us on (01482) 658312 or at hullreform@isa.karoo.co.uk
