Chairman's Report

I would like to thank all members and friends who attended the Shul AGM on Friday 21 June. The meeting went very well and thank you all again for re-electing me as the Chair for the next 12 months. It's a tremendous honour and I would like to thank everyone for their continued support.

It's also a true pleasure to now welcome Aimi Sugarman as the newly elected Vice Chair. I would like to also welcome Mark Huntington, Tim Harris and Helen Jackman onto the Shul Council. I would also like to thank Malcolm Rosenberg for taking on the Treasurer's role and to Audrey Sugarman for becoming our Senior Warden (again). We now have some remarkable people serving on the Council with a variety of skill-sets and I'm really looking forward to working with them over the next year.

Malcolm has arranged for a speaker from Dove House Hospice (Dan Clipson) to come and deliver a talk about the remarkable work the Hospice undertakes each year in looking after clients in Hull & East Yorkshire. The talk will take place at 6.15pm on Friday 2 August 2019 in the Shul hall.

Following a request by the Conversion Class members, we have decided to have a Sunday morning Kosher outing to Manchester. The plan is to visit Jacksons Row Synagogue, whose history spans back 150 year, have a spot of lunch at the JS Restaurant, visit a few book and Judaica shops and finally stop off at a nearby kosher deli/supermarket on the way back. We have booked a Mini bus from the Synagogue to depart at 9.30am on Sunday 18 August. The transport will be free of charge. The bus is now getting full please can we have final names by 7.00pm on Friday 2 August 2019. Please see page 3 for further details.

I would also like to thank Micha's parents for providing the splendid Kiddush last Friday evening which went down very well. It lovely to see a packed Shul each week!

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

HULL HERITAGE OPEN DAY Established in 1994, Heritage Open Days is England's contribution to the European Heritage Days and has since grown into the country's largest heritage festival.

Every September, Heritage Open Days (organised centrally by the National Trust, and locally by civic societies and other amenity bodies) opens historic buildings and provides events such as walks and talks. Locally, this is done by the Beverley Civic Society in conjunction with Hull Civic Society. The initiative encourages the public to come and see buildings not usually open, take part in historic area walks, listen to short talks, etc. Everything is free, including the brochure of events.

For more details and to receive a free brochure please contact John Netherwood, the Projects Director of Hull Civic Society o (01482) 653 657 or at opendays@hullcivicsoc.info

On Sunday morning 15 September 2019 at 10.00am, Ne've Shalom will again be opening its doors to the public, as one of the officially recognised Heritage Open Day events. We will be providing an opportunity for visitors to look around the Synagogue, talk to those members present and examine the Ark, Scrolls and other artefacts. Last year, this proved to be an extremely popular event with the public, as we had over 60 visitors to the Shul.

Although we already have some volunteers to assist us, if you do wish to help us to meet and greet, please contact Andy on either 01482 330 510 or 07736 397 858 or at andy@hsts.co.uk
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
