Since Pesach, we’ve been counting; when that count gets to 49 days, or 7 weeks, it’s time to celebrate Shavuot.

The Rabbinic recruitment working party (RRWP) have been continuing with preparatory work, including the documentation on the website and a request for members to email the question they would like applicants to answer.

Our Book club is taking a summer break after two years of zoom meetings, in which we’ve read some great Jewish themed books and enjoyed lively discussions.

In our 65th year, Leo Baeck College would like to reach out to as many of our stakeholders in the Progressive Jewish communities as possible.

Over the past months the number of people joining in these sessions has diminished. As a result, it has been suggested that, at least during the summer months, when people are more likely to be out and about, we discontinue the Zoom sessions. We can then review the situation again after the High Holy Days.

‘Eighty’ is the years since six synagogues came together to create what would become the Movement for Reform Judaism.

I am starting a group for anyone who has converted through Sinai, either recently or many moons ago, I am hoping you will be interested in joining some sessions throughout this year.

This year’s AGM will be held on 26 May 2022 at 19.30 at Sinai.  

CST wishes our whole community a safe and enjoyable Pesach

For two years, we have been unable to celebrate Pesach as we all wanted to. We have been unable to sit around the seder table with family and friends, every household carrying out its own version of this very special festival.

Think of Purim and we think of Esther, Mordecai, the Megillah, booing every mention of Haman in shul, and of course dressing up.
