Northern Chagigah is the new name for the Northern Communities Weekend. Chagigah means 'celebration' and reflects the spirit of a joyful, fun, uplifting, spiritual, family-friendly gathering which we will be creating during our weekend.
Our weekend will take place at Kenwood Hall. Just one mile from Sheffield city centre it combines a convenient location with an idyllic country setting, 12 acres of beautiful parkland and landscaped grounds will provide the perfect backdrop for our Northern communities to meet together. Whether you wish to join in all of the learning sessions or simply enjoy a relaxing weekend in a comfortable and inclusive Reform environment with walks, a swim and the newspapers, this weekend is designed for you.
Our theme is 'Lighting the Way'. As we prepare for Chanukah, our northern lights will shine brightly. You can look forward to enlightened thinking in our sessions, looking at the role of light in Judaism and our own personal illumination. And we will consider how we can light the way, planning for our movement, communities, Israel and the wider world.
There will be something for everyone whether you’re planning on coming on your own, with your partner, as an interfaith couple or family. There will be a crèche for the under fives and a full RSY-Netzer programme for those over five.
