Chairman's Report




It's with great sadness that I have to report that Chris Lilley passed away 20 May 2019 in Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. Chris had put up a long and brave fight due to his medical problems. I wish all Chris's family ' A very long life '. Thanks go to Ian taking the moving funeral service.


On Sunday 12 May 2019, the Hull Jewish Representative Council hosted a Community BBQ to celebrate the 71st Anniversary of the State of Israel - Yom Ha'Atzmaut 5779. We had a very good turn out from members and friends of our Shul. Ian and I assisted in cooking (and tasting) the food on the BBQ. I have not received any reports of food poisoning, yet. Everybody seemed to enjoy the splendid afternoon. Ian led truly wonderful Shavuot Service on Sunday 9 June and Tony did a remarkable job reading from the Torah. Thank to Audrey, Gillian and Elaine for preparing the marvellous Kiddush.


I have been asked to remind members about the Garden Party being held by the Hull Friends of Magen David Adom (MDA) on Sunday 7 July 2019 at 2.30pm. There is a donation of £6.00 and the venue for the party will be Riga House, 24 Humber Road, North Ferriby HU14 3DW


Following a request by the Conversion Class members, we have decided to have a 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. Please see page 3 for further details.


We will be holding our Annual General Meeting on Friday 21 June 2019 at 6.00pm prompt. If you are a full member of the Shul, you have a right to vote. Please try and make every effort to attend the meeting.


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.
