EHRS Awards: Everyday Heroes Recognised as Stars

Tuesday 26 February 2019

During the time of our being members of the Synagogue, no matter for how many years, we know many people. We see each other at services, within committee or at the various events that we attend. Yet how often can we say that we truly know those whom we greet and with whom we chat? In reality very few.

However, on Tuesday 26 February we had the rare opportunity and, indeed, the privilege of really knowing those inspirational members of our community who have been honoured as “Everyday Heroes Recognised as Stars”.

Taste of Talmud with Rabbi Adam Frankenberg
Sundays 3 March to 7 April, 10:15

What exactly is the Talmud anyway? We hear the rabbis cite it in their sermons, but few of us (if any!) have a copy of this remarkable code of Jewish law.

This six session course will give you all the basic tools you need to begin learning from this momentous text.

Led by Rabbi Adam Frankenberg, you will cover the historical background, key terms, and explore the various translations available for study today. No Hebrew or Aramaic is needed to join!

Mondays 7 January, 4 February, 4 March, 1 & 29 April, 20:00

In honour of the New Moon, a traditional women’s holiday, this is a monthly study group for women and men. We think we know our ancestral mothers, but how much do we actually remember about women like Sarah? By delving into Torah and Rabbinic literature we’ll explore the familiar and unfamiliar aspects of these women and what they can teach us. With Eleanor Davis

Shabbats 26 January, 2 & 23 February, 2 March, 9:30

Ideal if you know the Hebrew alphabet but aren’t confident reading whole sentences or paragraphs in Hebrew: before the morning service begins, we’ll tackle one or two prayers at a slower pace, and look at their content and the meaning of Hebrew vocabulary we meet along the way.

Tuesdays 8 January to 9 April, 11:00

An opportunity to brush up on the mameloshen that your Booba used when she got angry with your Zaider.

Tuesdays 8 January to 9 April, 10:00

A fun, conversational class that is suitable for people who can read script and have a basic spoken Hebrew knowledge.
