Last Sunday saw the penultimate event celebrating 50 years of the Yeshurun community, and as expected it was a sell-out afternoon with 150 people gathering for our Sparkling Gala Afternoon tea. Dainty sandwiches and beautiful cakes were served with endless pots of tea and much reminiscing as everyone was treated to a fantastic few hours honouring the Founder members who had the foresight and commitment to create a new shul with new values.
You can see and hear some of their thoughts by watching this video.
A selection of photographs are shown below but you can access them all by following this link.
Many thanks to Laura Stolberg for capturing the unique Yeshurun flavour of the afternoon in her photographs.

Pesach is just about behind us and we face a day that is the culmination of heroic faith and inner strength. Yom Hashoah Vehagevurah - the day of remembrance of the Shoah and heroic deeds. Many have argued to and fro as to the timing of this day of remembrance, a day as solemn as it gets. In Israel all the shops and the houses of entertainment are closed in commemoration of all that happened; a holocaust so awful that mankind shall be tarnished by it forever. When an evil unparalleled in history arose against our people seeking to destroy and annihilate us and nearly succeeded.
Can we ever explain this? So many have tried within Orthodoxy and from without, from within our faith as well as outsiders but I believe that there is no answer. That in the face of such inherent evil we lower our gaze, shield our eyes and turn away from the inexplicable.
Yet we rise up, face our creator in heaven and move on, ensuring that the eternity of Israel shall not lie fallow…

Over 30 of our members wrapped up warm to enjoy our annual Matzo Ramble over the Bank Holiday weekend as they ventured onto the hills of the Goyt Valley district. Thankfully they all remembered to pack a hot drink in their picnic lunch!

Well done to our very talented and hard working Ladies Guild, who have just finished getting everything ready for our communal Seder next week. It all looks amazing - and we are quite sure that the 72 guests will have a fabulous meal and enjoy a warm Seder together.

It seems like only a few weeks ago when the fabulous Shabbaton Choir spent the weekend with us. Those who came along to the community dinner on the Friday night or the special concert on the Saturday evening will always remember the amazing atmosphere these talented gentlemen created just for us.
You can now re-live just a few of those moments with this short video clip - with many thanks to Jaymie Isaacs of Sparkle Productions - as many times as you would like - just click here!
