Come along to Your Purim Party 5775!

Dress as your hero. Pick up a free drink with your ticket, and then pub prices all night. A lovely old-style music hall until 2.30 in the morning- right next to Tufnell Park tube. A great chance to catch up with friends, meet people and enjoy some festive fun. For those who like a dance, DJs Joey Leskin, Libby Burkeman, and Leah Jordan, amongst others, will be playing an eclectic mix. Plenty of space to relax and chat- with face-painting, games and “photo-booth” provided.

Also….Missed the Megila reading or just love it that much you want to relive it? Come along at 8.40 for our Megila themed extravaganza where we'll be combining the retelling of the story, the commandment to drink and be merry with some novel new additions!

This is an exciting coming-together of Reform Young Adults, LJ Routes, West London Synagogue, Alyth, Finchley Reform Synagogue, Hendon Reform Synagogue, Edgware & District Reform Synagogue, RSY-Netzer bogrim, Jeneration, and many others! We look forward to seeing you there!

Shirei Chagigah: A celebration of music & prayer incorporating the MRJ choirs festival

 

 

 

 

9-12th July 2015

 

Shirei Chagigah is the new name for the Movement for Reform Judaism’s biennial music conference. It means ‘songs of celebration’ and reflects the celebration of music and prayer which we will enjoy over this very special weekend.

Faculty confirmed: Cantor Benjie-Ellen Schillerm, Noah Aronson, Cantor Zöe Jacobs, Merri Arian, Rabbi Noam Katz.

It will give you the tools and experiences to learn about and enjoy Jewish music and t’fillah (prayer) and is an opportunity to learn from the world’s foremost experts in the field of Jewish liturgical music. Through a series of workshops and services you will explore the use of music to enhance religious services, learn new melodies and choral harmonies for traditional prayers and be part of a remarkable community.

 

Shirei Chagigah is not only for people who love to sing! For the first time we will be adding an extra dimension by having a programming stream dedicated to those in our communities who lead Shabbat services. Our Shaliach Tzibbur course is designed for you whether you have been leading services for many years or whether it’s something you would like to start doing. It will be taught both by our American faculty and by our very own rabbis and cantors.

In addition the MRJ Choirs Festival will take place on the Sunday from 10am to 5pm and be run by Viv Bellos, Director of Music at Alyth, and aims to enthuse, encourage and inspire synagogue choirs of all abilities from around the country. It will provide opportunities to work in depth on performance pieces, repertoire, warm up techniques and troubleshooting vocal difficulties. If you wish to join for the whole event entry to the Choirs Festival is included or if you wish to attend for the choirs festival only then please select the Choirs Festival option. For further details please contact Viv on 020 8457 8795 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

As the conference is non-residential we will be offering host families for all participants from outside London or we will be negotiating rates with local hotels if you prefer.

Come and join us as part of a truly memorable weekend where you can learn for yourself and learn to take back to your community.
