Shabbat on the Hill
About once a month in Muswell Hill we get together for a great kiddush, often featuring chulent (or falafel in the Summer!) and a fascinating speaker. We call it Shabbat on the Hill
Next Shabbat on the Hill – 6th May 2017 – Joe Hyman: Orthodox and Gay – Where do I fit in?
On the Shabbat when we read the Parasha (Torah Portion) of Acharei Mot join us in hearing Joe address the difficulties he has faced growing up Orthodox and Gay in our community and what he feels the community needs to do to address the people behind this taboo issue. This promises to be a talk not to be missed.
Upcoming Shabbat on the Hill speakers:
13th May 2017 – Jonathan Arksuh (President Board of Deputies of British Jews): Our community under pressure – can we cope?
Previous Shabbat on the Hill Speakers have included:
Rabbi David Mason: The Israeli Settler Movement and Fundamentalism – Rabbinic Reactions to Radical Extremism
Michael Turner, UNESCO Chairholder in Urban Design and Conservation Studies at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem: Perceptions of Jerusalem: Then and Now
Mia Hasenson-Gross, Rene Cassin and Rahwa Fessahaye, Detention Action: Indefinite immigration detention in the UK
Robin Moss, UJIA Centre for Israel Engagement: “The Kids Will be Alright” – Is Israel losing the attentions of our young people, and what can we do about it?
Shabbat on the Hill Sponsorship
Our monthly Shabbat on the Hill season is here once again, with a succession of enthralling speakers to entertain and educate us after the shabbat morning service.
We are looking for sponsors for these; you won’t get your name on a permanent plaque, as everything gets eaten, but you will know that you are adding to the enjoyment of shabbat. So if you have something to celebrate, or just want to help with costs, whether individually or with friends, please contact Jo Cowen in the shul office and she will tell you the available dates.
