Chairman's Report

Firstly, it's with great sadness that we have to report the loss of Sydney Bush, who passed away in Spain on 21 December 2018. Sydney's funeral took place at our Tranby Lane Cemetery, at which Ian Sugarman led a moving service. On behalf of the Council, I would like to wish Ann and Sarita, family and close friends of Sydney, 'long life'.

The number of members and visitors seem to increasing for our services over the last few weeks. I must thank the skill of our dedicated lay readers for conducting the services.

We are holding one of our famous Friday Night Open Services on Friday 22 February at 7.00pm. The service will be led by Aimi and Ian, and they will be explaining the nature and background of the prayers being recited and some of the traditional rituals being observed. Following the service, visitors (and our own members) will have the opportunity to sample a range of Jewish style foods. Could you please inform our catering officer, Audrey Sugarman, on 01482 563835 with names and the number of guests you intend to invite.

Members will have noticed that we have had two regular attenders to the Shul over the last 6 months. Sarah and Rebecca have both decided to start the journey of converting to Judaism and we wish them all the best. Our Life President, Ian Sugarman, will be giving up every other Sunday morning to guide them through the conversion programme. Deborah Wrapson will also be giving up her Sunday morning to teach them both Hebrew (most of my scars have now healed from my time in the classroom). Rabbi Debbie Young-Somers has kindly agreed to be their Sponsoring Rabbi through this amazing time. I wish you both well on this life-changing journey and it's really worth all the time and effect which goes in to it. All the members are fully supporting you. Good Luck.

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

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.
