Rosh Hashanah Appeal 2016/5777

This year our Rosh Hashanah appeal is for funds to enable us to continue to provide the wide range of essential communal activities that many take for granted.
These include the provision of regular religious services; the maintenance of a purpose built community centre; the services of a full-time Rabbi; providing an essential kosher facility for the whole of the community; the maintenance of a communal mikvah and regular social activities and pastoral support to those members in need.

Shul membership fees only cover part of our considerable expenditure. In order to continue to provide - and hopefully expand - the range of facilities, together with maintaining the security and protection of our buildings and congregants, it is essential that we raise additional funds.

Please give generously at this auspicious time of the year.
