Rabbi Lionel Blue talks to HJC

Popular speaker and media personality Rabbi Lionel Blue entertained an audience of congregants and non-members at the synagogue last week with jokes on how to cope with the trials that life throws up. He also offered some tips on how to cope with the difficulties of ageing, speaking for nearly two hours without notes.

Rabbi Shillor said: “He charmed us all with his wisdom and wit. It was an impressive and enjoyable performance.”

A collection raised almost £200 for Leo Baeck College.


60th Anniversary Service

Harlow Jewish Community celebrated its 60th anniversary at a service representing all the generations and attended by MP Robert Halfon.

Cheder pupils delighted the congregation when they read extracts from the synagogue newsletter in the week of their birth and showed their baby photos. Congregants representing all the generations were called up to the Torah and Movement for Reform Judaism’s synagogue partnership director David Jacobs presented the congregation with a certificate.


Also present were Harlow Chairman Maggie Hulcoup, and  guests from many local organisations


Chairman Ian Jackson said: “It was a wonderful opportunity to mark our 60th anniversary. We were delighted to welcome former rabbis and old friends as well as current congregants. We’re now busy preparing for our garden party with a 50s theme to mark the year of our birth. It’s on Sunday July 15 and everyone is invited.”
