Annual AJEX Remembrance & Civic Service

Appeal for help with funding. Once again we are seeking the support of the community to help fund the annual AJEX Remembrance and Civic Service Kiddush which takes place at Yeshurun on Shabbat November 8. Sadly the number of AJEX members is diminishing and we need to rely on others to help us fund this important occasion which is so good for community and interfaith relations. Cheques can be made payable to AJEX and sent to the Synagogue office. Of course, we look forward to the ongoing loyal financial support of AJEX members. We are extremely grateful to Ruth Kaitiff for the very generous donation towards the Kiddush from her Coffee and Bagels events. We are hoping children from the Cheder and other young people from our Synagogue and members of any Jewish Scout or Brownie groups and Jewish Youth Movements  will be able to join the annual Remembrance Sunday Parade in Cheadle which is on Sunday 9 November at 10.30am. It is very important that our young people participate to carry forward the message of those who played their part in protecting this country during the two world wars.

For further information please contact the Shul office or email joywol@gmail.com. Please will AJEX members and other members of the congregation make every effort to attend the Parade and will AJEX MEMBERS let Leonard know in the office if you will be in Synagogue for the Civic Service so you can be put on a list for an aliya if they are available. Also confirm if you are able to attend the parade on the Sunday. The assembly point is by the church in Massey Street at 10.30am and the parade contingents walk to the Cenotaph at the far end of the High Street. Our community is always shown the utmost respect on this occasion and we are anxious to maintain a good turnout of Jewish participants. Best wishes Brian and Joy Wolfe.


OR MEIR & BRACHA UPDATE

In keeping with everyone the current conflict has put increased demands on the Or Meir and Bracha Victims of Terror Centre and the needs for funds is greater than ever. Thanks to everyone who has already responded to the emergency appeal, but can I appeal to all of you to try to support us at this time
As well as increased personal requests from existing families we support, appeals for help from new families affected by this current conflict come in on a daily basis.
In addition to this there have been appeals for help from the Centre’s adopted army unit in southern Israel and the request for specific supplies meant £12,000 is having to be raised. If you can help in any way please send your donations into Leonard in the Shul office

It is difficult to describe how much our ongoing support means to our adopted families and to the Centre so it is vital I am able to continue to keep up with the demand.
As the vast amount of the money that comes into our account comes from other synagogues and sources, I particularly want to thank everyone involved for that. Without that there is no way I could maintain the regular payment of £1100 a month that we are committed to, never mind meet the many requests for extra help that come in regularly. It would really help if more people signed up to a regular payment, however small.

I can assure you that the lifeline we provide for our families is the only thing that makes them able to cope with the huge emotional and financial difficulties they face on a daily basis.
