This is a packed month of Jewish events.
It’s a rollercoaster ride moving from the memory of the Holocaust and Israel’s fallen soldiers to the highlight of the creation of the State of Israel, reflecting our ability to be a free people in a free land. 2018 is, of course, the 70th year since Israel’s founding so this will be a special celebration. In this newsletter we’ll challenge you to think more about your relationship to Israel: it’s meaning to you, and the impact it has on your programming and organisation.
Rabbi David Levin-Kruss, Director of Jewish Education for Europe for the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), teaches how Jewish texts and values offer a structure to make all Jews, no matter the disability, feel included and welcome in our community.
