Don't forget about the baskets near the front door.  They are for our donations of food and toiletries that go to HARP, the local charity that helps the homeless.  Please remember to drop some item of food or toiletries into the basket next time you come to the Synagogue.  Every little bit helps.

Our Annual Quiz this year was held on Saturday, 24th November - 16 tables of varying amounts of members, fought for the honour of winning.  There were, I believe, 60 raffle prizes and the money raised from the raffle went to Havens.  A very enjoyable evening was had by all.
