Chairman's Report

I would like to wish everyone Shana Tova for 5780 hope you all have healthy and sweet New Year.

I'm very pleased to report that we had an outstanding High Holy Day Services. I would personally like to thank our Life President, Ian Sugarman, for his hard work co-ordinating the services again this year. We had a remarkable number of members filling the Shul for Services yet again. We also had three fantastic High Holy Day sermons delivered this year by Sarah, Adrian and Rebecca. Thank you all for your very interesting and thought-proving sermons.

I'd also like to thank Sarita, Malcolm and Tony for the Torah readings, which were read splendidly, as well as our highly dedicated lay readers for taking the Services this year. Special thanks go to Sarita, Ian, Aimi, Malcolm, Mark and Tony. Thank you also to all our members who did the lovely readings, opened the Ark, or just joined in. I would also like to thank Ian for the singing of the Kol Nidre prayer and to Neal Skinner for accompanying him on the Cello. Ian and Neal had spent many hours and days rehearsing and arranging the music for Kol Nidre and all members were truly moved by the singing and cello playing. We have also had some splendid feedback from members who attended. Lesley Annis wrote" Many thanks to all who took part in the High Holy Day Services especially Yom Kippur Morning led by Ian and Malcolm. They did a fantastic job and we are so lucky to have such talented people." This year's High Holy Day appeal money goes to Dove House Hospice.

We had a good turnout, yet again, to build and decorate the Sukkah, with some interesting fruit appearing. Following on from this, in the evening, Ian led the Sukkot Service for our community. This year's Simchat Torah Honours go to Audrey and Aimi Sugarman (Grandmother and Granddaughter). Audrey and Aimi are both truly committed and they both give up so much of their spare time for the Shul. The many hours they spend each week behind the scenes to ensure the Shul runs in a smooth manner does not go unnoticed. Thank you Aimi for providing the splendid food for the evening and also driving to Manchester to collect the food, which went down very well by the fantastic show of members celebrating the evening. What a tremendous atmosphere there was.

Please remember that the Ne've Shalom (Hull Reform Synagogue) Remembrance Service is to be held at 2.30pm, Sunday 10 November 2019. The Service will last under an hour and light refreshments will be served afterwards. We have some very high profile guests attending the service, which is open to all.

The date has now been set for the trip to see The Prince of Egypt musical at the Dominion Theatre, London. It will take place on Saturday 16 May 2020. Details will be published in the next issue of the Shofar Shalom. The price of the theatre ticket is 79 for a circle seat and we will travelling down on Hull Trains in the morning to see an afternoon showing. Please let Helen know on 07884 432329 by 30 November 2019, if you wish to come.
Forthcoming Events

This year, we are holding a Service of Remembrance in the Shul hall on Sunday afternoon, 10 November 2019. The Service will start at 2.30pm and a number of local dignitaries will be in attendance to show their support to our community.

This is an open Service and all are welcome to remember the sacrifices made by the Jewish community during the two World Wars. During the Service, we will be hearing from some of the surviving relatives and hearing stories and memories of their loved ones.

Refreshments will be available after the Service.

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.
