HaMakom and Or HaLev present: Jewish Mindfulness Meditation Retreat

with Rabbi Dr James Jacobson Maisels

A unique weekend dedicated to the practice of Jewish mindfulness meditation and the deepening of our spiritual lives with one of the world’s leading Jewish mindfulness meditation teachers.

Together we will explore how the practice of meditation helps us to understand better the nature of our minds and to cultivate the qualities of contentment, gratitude, forgiveness, compassion and wisdom.

We welcome people of all ages and of all faiths/religions and none. Suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners.
Last year the Retreat was sold out and so we encourage you to apply early to avoid disappointment.

When: Friday 1 - Monday 4 May (Bank Holiday weekend) 2015

Led by: Rabbi James Jacobson-Maisels, Or HaLev,  and assisted by: Leo Baeck College rabbinic student Danny Newman, Founder of HaMakom, and Matthew Rosen Marsh

Maccabi GB Community Fun RunCome and put your trainers on! You're invited to run, jog or walk for Reform Judaism in the Maccabi GB Community Fun Run. Please mark Sunday 14 June in your diary. This is a great and fun opportunity to take part with thousands of other people to help raise funds for RSY-Netzer, our youth and student work, community education, leadership training, our Beit Din (rabbinic court) and more.

Taking place at the world class facilities of Allianz Park in north London you can support Reform Judaism by taking part in one of five great events: 1km run, 5km run, 10km run, a 5km walk or for the brave and superfit the Tri-run (all three distances!) There will be a family fun zone, health and wellbeing hub, food court and much more.

We can discuss which particular area of our work you would like to support; we can help you set up a justgiving donation page; and if you take part we’d be happy to donate back 18% of donations to your community if you so wish.

For more information and to register visit the Maccabi GB Community Fun Run website or contact Adam Overlander-Kaye, Fundraising Director at Reform Judaism: aok@reformjudaism.org.uk

The Movement for Reform Judaism Annual General Meeting


Shirei Chagigah
July 09, 2015 - July 12, 2015
(The Movement for Reform Judaism) (Community Events)

Shirei ChagigahShirei 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.

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.

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. 

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.
