1. There will be a workshop on Tuesday 7 February 7.30-9.30pm specifically to help those who are fairly new to family history and are needing some help with the basics - birth marriage death records, census returns, immigration records etc. Space is limited so please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to come along. If this proves popular I will hold another during the summer months.

On Friday, 14th April, 2017 we will be holding our annual Pesach Seder Night.  Put the date in your diaries now. The cost to Members: £20 and Non-members £25 (under 16’s: £10).  To book your places, please fill in the form in the latest edition of the magazine, or contact Diana Miller for more information.  The Seder will commence at    6.30 pm.

From Friday to Sunday, 2nd - 4th June, the Synagogue will hold an 'Open Weekend'.  Included in this it is hoped to have a session of 'I'm Jewish, my Partner isn't'.  Keep looking out as further details will follow in due course.

The AGM of the Synagogue Council will be held on 16th July, 2017
