President’s Message – February 12

Shabbat Shalom!

The word of the week:

This morning several women from our community and I attended (via ZOOM) the first meeting of the Commonwealth Jewish Women’s Network. “The Commonwealth Jewish Council (CJC) works to enhance links between Commonwealth Jewish communities and to give voices to their concerns, commitments, principles and positions on the wider international stage. The CJC is an umbrella organisation that connects over 35 Jewish communities around the Commonwealth with the wider Jewish world and its resources.”

The speakers included The Rt Hon Patricia Scotland – Secretary General of the Commonwealth, Rahima Mahmut – UK Project Director of the World Uyghur Congress and Dr Aliza Inbal – Founding Director for Global Innovation. The speakers were not only inspiring, but their stories were compelling and reinforced the fact that no matter how small a community we live in, we are all part of a global network. We are connected not just through Judaism, but through our contributions to our community and to the greater needs of our society.

We will be sending out our Passover order forms this coming week. Please be on the lookout for the email.  All orders will be due by February 22nd

We will be holding ZOOM this evening, February 12, 2021 at 6:30pm.  It is the yahrtzeit for Marshall Oran.
