A Service to Mark the 70th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz
February 01, 2015
(The Movement for Reform Judaism) (Community Events)

At 6.30pm on Sunday, 1 February 2015, Westminster Abbey will be holding a service to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. The service will be a powerful remembrance of the terrible events symbolised by Auschwitz, and will speak equally of the importance of penitence, faith and reconciliation.

There will be Jewish choirs and memorial candles being lit to honour the memory of those many communities who were murdered at Auschwitz including Jews, Roma, gay people, disabled, Jehovah’s witnesses and political opponents of the Nazi regime. Rabbi Baroness Julia Neuberger of West London Synagogue (WLS) will be preaching at the service and Rabbi Helen Freeman, also of WLS, will be taking part of the service


Tickets are available here. There is no charge but tickets are required for security purposes.

Trip to Ethiopia
March 14, 2015 - March 26, 2015
(The Movement for Reform Judaism) (Community Events)

Trip to Ethiopia 14th – 26th March 2015

Meet the last Jews in Ethiopia!

See how they live and learn at first hand of their long and tragic history. From the kingdom of the Queen of Sheba, to the Jews who left in Operation Solomon; the Beta Israel have been sovereigns and slaves; commanded vast areas and suffered exile because of their faith.

The city of Gondar is home to some of the poorest Jews on the planet, yet they will welcome you into their synagogue and homes.  You will see their many work projects, play with their children and help in the Meketa after school club.

But that is not all. We will also see some of the greatest historical sights of sub-Sahara Africa along with areas of rare natural beauty.

The trip is led by Rabbi Sybil Sheridan and an Ethiopian guide.

Cost: £1900
inclusive of all flights, hotels, transport, entry tickets and most meals.

Contact Rabbi Sybil on meketafunding@gmail.com for more details
