From The Chairman

During 2014, our Community had passed through a Year of Challenge, yet we found new strength and continued to provide for its needs At our last AGM, held on Monday 18 May 2015, in our Hall, we elected 4 Honorary Officers, myself as Chair, Jeffrey Sloneem FR, & David Solomons and Arthur Baker Wardens. We had……

a Board of 5 men & 4 Ladies,

with Mr Sheldon Mordsley our Representative on the Board of Deputies and US Council. I can not praise or thank them enough, for their effort and dedication to the activities and well-being of our Kehilla.

Subsequent to that AGM, I was approached as it ended, by Laurie Cowan wishing to join the Board, and he was followed at a later date by Michael Hylton with the same request. In each case I was delighted to ask the next Board Meeting, to approve my request to co-opt them. The Board did so unanimously, increasing its Members ………
to 7 men & 4 Ladies.

I am proud for our Community that we have such a response to its need for Leadership, and very grateful to those who have come forward offering to give their time and energy to providing it.
In addition to the elected, I give my thanks and appreciation to Lee Anderson and her Guild for all their work, providing a regular Shabbas Kiddush as well as many Special ones, and food and refreshments to support and enhance so many of our other Events. I praise Sandra Bromberg and her Welfare Committee for their Care work, They provide the ’’extras’’ at Pesach and Shavuos, and Parties for the homebound and lonely. I thank those that help them with transport and accommodation.
I also give my thanks to Trevor and Stephen Green for their help and support in the many issues that arise in caring for our Building, and our Suka at Succos, and to Trevor who now helps, when able, with our Services.
Finally, I must thank Rabbi Levy for being the Centre around which our whole Community revolves, and for the work he does in caring for it and its individual Members
I look to the presence and support of all our Members in sharing in all our Services and Events, and so helping our Community continue into a warm and satisfying Future.
Together we have built it.

Together we are proud of it.

Let us work together to continue it!!
