Chairman's Report

Following the huge success of last year's High Holy Day Services, the Shul Council has decided again to engage our highly dedicated team of Lay Readers to take this year's services. Ian Sugarman along with Malcolm Rosenberg will be co-ordinating this year's truly remarkable services. Please all try and make ever effect to join the Services details can be found on page 4 of the newsletter.

We had the great honour of Rabbi Danny Rich leading the Torah service and study session on the Shabbat service which was held on 1 September. Rabbi Rich also conducted the Admission to the Faith ceremony for Gill Drummond, which was a truly moving experience and we all welcome Gill to our wonderful traditional Shul. A massive Mazeltov to her.

On Sunday 9 September at 10.00am, we are taking part in the Hull heritage open day. The initiative encourages the public to come and see buildings not usually open to the public. I have few volunteers to assist already, but if you feel you would like to meet and greet and show guests around our wonderful Shul please contact me on 01482 330510 or 07736 397858 or email andy@hsts.co.uk

Helen and I and a few members from Hull had the honour to attend David and Suzanne wedding Chuppah at Sukkot Shalom on the 12 August 2018. On behalf of all the members we wish them both a long and happy life together and look forward to seeing them on Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur.

On behalf of myself and all the council members we wish you all Shanah Tovah for 5779.

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

This year, we are delighted to announce that the High Holy Day Services will be conducted by a team of the Shul's Lay Readers supported by members providing readings during parts of the Services. All Services will take place at Ne've Shalom, the Hull Reform Synagogue, Great Gutter Lane (West) in Willerby and members are reminded that all Services will start promptly.

Although admission to these Services is open to all it is intended to continue the procedure by which only members, and people known to members, are admitted in to the Shul. It would be much appreciated, therefore, if members bringing guests, or out-of-town family could inform the Shul Secretary, Joanne Kearsley, on (01724 340506) in good time prior to the day of the Service, as this might save any embarrassment on the day.

This year we are again asking those attending to confirm their ID by giving their name and address to the Security Officer at the door of the Shul.

Once the Service has started, the gates to car park will be locked and the Security Officer will be patrolling the grounds. If required, they can unlock the car park gates. The outer door to the Shul will also be secured and the CCTV will be used to identify late-comers.

The dates and times of the Services are as follows:

Sun. 9 September Erev Rosh Hashanah 7.00pm

Mon. 10 September Rosh Hashanah 10.30am

Tue. 18 September Kol Nidre 7.00pm

Wed. 19 September Yom Kippur 11.00am

Sun. 23 September Sukkot 7.00pm

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
