Last weekend‘s Shavuot celebrations were festive, joyful and filled with many highlights. Thank you to all who contributed to its success.

Danny Adeno Abebe gave a brilliant talk on his journey from a little village in Ethiopia, where he was born, to Israel, and the many challenges he and his family had to face to reach Jerusalem, the city of their dreams.

Theresa Sobel and Hester Hollander excelled in the morning service, leading parts of the service and reading from the Torah. Over the past months, they have been part of our adult BaMi programme and we hope that many more will follow their wonderful example.

Congratulations to Hester who also won the cheesecake competition.
