Chairman's Report

Wow! Now where do I start as Chairman of Hull Reform Synagogue?

I am looking forward to the challenges of the role, but it will be certainly very hard to match the achievements of Ian. Luckily Ian has said he will help, support and guide me in the right direction, he is still continuing to edit and produce the Shofar Shalom, take Services and work in the background.

It's a true honour to be given the chance to be the Chairman of our Reform Jewish community here in Hull. As I said at the AGM, we are the best! I'd also like to wish Ian a hearty Mazel Tov on being awarded Life Presidency/ Honorary Membership of Ne've Shalom If you missed my proposal and presentation at our AGM, it can be found on page 7 of Shofar Shalom, along with a copy of Ian's certificate. On a personal note, I cannot thank Ian enough for he all has done for us.

I would also like to welcome all the elected Synagogue Council members and wish Mazel Tov to Phil as my Vice-Chair. Our new Senior Warden, Audrey, has named us Ant & Dec! We are both looking forward to our year ahead and we are already thinking about our High Holy Day Services. This year, we will be doing it ourselves and, if you want to get involved, there are some further details on page 6.

Please remember, it's everyone's Shul and I want it to be a welcoming place for us all to meet, to pray and to come together. We are so lucky to have a wonderful Synagogue (and members). Please don't hesitate to contact me anytime on (01482) 330510, 07736 397858, or at andy@hsts.co.uk

Looking back, we had a reasonable turn out at the AGM on 16 June, which was pleasing. I must, however, give very special thanks to our Hon. Treasurer, Aimi Sugarman, for tackling the mammoth task of updating the Shul Constitution, looking after the Shul accounts and sorting out the legal affairs of the Shul. What a wonderful job she has done. I understand that Aimi will be sending out invoices shortly for the coming year's membership, so please can I ask for prompt payments. If you have difficulty making the membership payment please contact Aimi in confidence.

We are holding a special Kiddush on 11 August 2017 to celebrate Jim Lightowler's birthday. Please try to make every effort to attend this special event.

Finally, please don't forget to come to our Friday Night services at 7.00pm and Shabbat Morning Services at 10.30am on the first Saturday of each 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 either inform the Security Co-ordinator, Henry Goldstone, on (01482) 667258 or 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.

The dates and times of the Services are as follows:

Wed. 20 September
Erev Rosh Hashanah

Thu. 21 September
Rosh Hashanah

Fri. 29 September
Kol Nidre

Shabbat 30 September
Yom Kippur
