Chairman's Report

We have had another busy month at Ne've Shalom. Our Erev Shabbat Services continue to be well represented by members and friends attending the Services. Thank you for your support.

The Purim Service, held on the evening of 20 March 2019, was led by Ian Sugarman. As is our tradition, members of the congregation acted and read character parts from the Megillat Esther. We have got some truly amazing up and coming stars. As part of the evening's celebrations, we also held a fancy dress competition. Our team of highly qualified judges, Audrey and Henry did the scoring, whilst Veronica completed the score board. At the final count, we had three overall winners for best dressed, Ian, Sarah and of course myself as Fred Flintstone. The winning trio went home with splendid mug each. Thank you to all who took part, you all looked amazing too, and thank you all for attending this lovely evening.

On Sunday 24 March, we had another fantastic film afternoon at the Shul. This time we showed the film "Yentl" and provided free pop corn and snacks for the guests attending. Keep an eye out for our next film afternoon in the Shofar Shalom.

We still have a few tickets available for this year's Communal Seder 5779. Further details can be found on page 3 of our newsletter. Don't forget the 'early bird' saving.

Although Brexit did not happen on 29 March, there was another milestone happening on the day, Malcolm Rosenberg, our Senior Warden, has now retired from work after many years working. On behalf of all the members, I would like to wish Malcolm a long and happy retirement. We can now fill your spare time with some added duties in the Shul.

I would like to wish Helen a happy 50th Birthday for 2nd April, as this saves me buying a card! On a sad note, I have to report that we recently lost one of our Friends from the Shul, Olive Rosner. On behalf of everyone at Ne've Shalom, I wish Olive's family a long life. She will be missed by many of us,

Finally, 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's Communal Seder will be taking place on the first night of Pesach, Friday 19 April 2019.

The Seder Service will commence at 6.30pm and, as in previous years, the Seder is for members and their friends and there are limited places available. As always, we are very pleased that our Communal Seder is such a well attended event.

To ensure there is sufficient catering for everyone we need you to book your place in advance. Tickets will again cost 13.00 per person for members and 18.00 per person for non-members (7.00 for children under 13 years).

Tickets are available from Helen Jackman, who can be contacted on 07884 432 329, or at helen@hsts.co.uk or see Andy in Shul.

Please note, that although bookings should be made in advance, should you choose to pay on the night, the prices will rise to 15.00 per person for members and 20.00 per person for non-members. Don't wait, book now and save!

To help us with catering, Deborah, Shirley and Joanne would be grateful for an expression of interest in attending. They may ask you for help in making a salad etc., to make the event a really communal affair and you can reclaim the cost of the ingredients.

If you have helped regularly in previous years and are not intending to join us this year - it would be helpful if you could let Deborah know. Deborah can be contacted on 01482 848247, at deb.wrap@gmail.com or see her in Shul.

You can also use joannekearsley@yahoo.co.uk and Joanne will forward any messages to Deborah.
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
