Beginning with the second night of Pesach we count the Omer until we arrive in our calendar at Shavuot. To help you with the counting, we have prepared a leaflet for you with a calendar, the blessings and the numbers (download your list here: COUNTING THE OMER 2018, and available in the Shul). Traditionally the Omer is counted in the evening, after sunset.
Yom Ha Shoah—12 April @ 12:00 WPC
The Jewish community comes together to remember the victims of the Shoah at Westpark Cemetery this year on 12 April at 12:00. The theme is for this year: “75 Years on, we remember the uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto.” The programme includes Debbie Joffe singing solo, recitation of poems and a Keynote address by Survivor Irene Klass. Please make an effort to join us for this important day of remembrance.
