Following on from Hendon Reform Synagogue's success at running a Night Shelter for the homeless of Barnet, we held an information evening on 5th of June to discuss the possibility of running a Night Shelter at EHRS.
The evening was well attended with representatives of the charities Together In Barnet (TiB), Homeless Action in Barnet (HAB) and social enterprise Linkey present along with people from the EHRS community who want to volunteer.
The ask from our community is to provide a hot evening meal, shelter for the night and breakfast in the morning for up to 17 homeless people who have a connection with Barnet.
Choral Evening Service for Yom Hashoah:
A beautiful service of songs, prayers and reflections
Wednesday 1 May, 19:00
An important part of our memorial service is to read the names of victims of the holocaust who were relatives of our synagogue members, and then say a communal Kaddish in their memory. Furthermore, there may be some among our community who may know of close friends or neighbours as well as of relatives who died in the persecution, and we want to mention these too.
Refreshments will be served at 20:00, followed by a talk by Holocaust survivor Zigi Shipper BEM, the evening will finish at approximately 21:00.
