Tuesdays 15 and 22 January, 20:00

Our perspectives on the Holocaust have undoubtedly been shaped by the stories and memoirs left to us by those who experienced the horrors first hand. From Anne Frank to Elie Wiesel, it's difficult to discuss the Shoah without relying on their words and works.

These two sessions, however, will look at the Holocaust in a different light: focusing solely on contemporaneous written accounts from people living outside the Nazis’ realm of influence. How did North American Jewry respond to the crisis? British Jewry? What lessons can be learned from examining the news of the day during one of the greatest human-made disasters in modern history?

Join these two sessions to explore a new understanding of what it means to never forget.
With Rabbi Emily Reitsma-Jurman

This timeless favourite will be screened with a bit of a twist… you will be singing along! As the good book says, there's no point in sitting at home and joining in the words to classics such as 'If I Were A Rich Man' and 'Matchmaker', when you can do it in the presence of your community.

Feel free to come in fancy dress and drink l'chaim to life! 

£3 in advance or £5 on the door with refreshments.

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!

With All Things Jewish at EHRS there’s a chance to learn Hebrew, investigate Jewish responses to contemporary issues, examine the issue of K’vod Ha’briyot (human dignity), try out mindfulness - and much more! 

Please take a copy of the current ATJ Brochure available in the synagogue foyer.

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.
