Let's Celebrate our Freedom

Passover 2014 begins in the evening of Monday April 14 and ends in the evening of Tuesday April 22, 2014.

The festival of Pesach is a joyous one. Hard work, but uplifting, as it comes in the spring season.  We are filled with light and warmth after the winter feeling rejuvenated.

We celebrate our freedom each year by retelling the Passover story. We are told that it really is our freedom, for if we had not come out of Egypt with Moses, we would all still be slaves today. It is most important to teach our children this story, and pass it on down the generations. We eat foods to symbolize different parts of the story, and it is a special family time.

We wish you all a Chag Kasher Vesameach - a joyful, Pesach!

Chazen Stephen CotsenJoin EBMC for a
special 'First-Timers'
Shabbat Service
Saturday 26 April 2014

BECC, Shakespeare Drive
off Furzehill Road
Borehamwood, WD6 2FD

With Very Special Guest, Chazan Stephen Cotsen

We are delighted to announce that once again we are to host Chazan Stephen Cotsen who will be helping to run a 'First Timers' services together with Jack Buechler.

Trying new things can be intimidating, especially when they are novel or foreign. Recognizing that taking part in any synagogue service for the first time can be a challenge, so we are offering you some Jewish prayer training so you can take part in our Shabbat services. 

This service is open to all members and guests but especially to those who have not taken part in any Shabbat service before or to those who have taken on minor roles but would like to extend their knowledge by learning some leyning or would like to develop other skills such as giving a D'var Torah (sermon).

So if you or anyone you know would like to take part in this very special Shabbat service or you would like to receive some prayer training, please contact Jack Buechler at jack@buechler.org.

JLGB Borehamwood

JLGB Juniors is for children aged 8 to 11 and generally are in Years 3 to 5.

JLGB is fun. Weekly group meetings, camps and other events across the country mean your children will be able to experience the hundreds of different activities offered every year.

JLGB provides a safe environment. Every JLGB leader is police checked, first-aid trained and has attended a rigorous training programme.

A large percentage of JLGB members grow up to become excellent leaders. As the Chief Rabbi has said, the JLGB “has inspired many generations of young leaders who have learned, through their involvement in the JLGB, the qualities, skills and attributes of good leadership”.

Regardless of whether or not your children attend Jewish schools, being a part of the JLGB family provides them with an unmatchable opportunity to make Jewish friends for life from all over the country and beyond.

Anyone in Year 6 can attend our Senior unit so please feel free to email for further information:
B/Captain Linda Leveney
Officer Commanding Borehamwood Juniors & Seniors.

EBMC PARENT & TODDLER GROUP - Volunteers Needed

With so many new members with babies and young children it would be in the community's best interest if a Parent and Toddler Group were to be established. It would give us an opportunity where parents, grandparents or carers and their children can go to have fun and meet new people. Parents and carers would remain with, and would be entirely responsible for, their children throughout the sessions.

What we are looking for are volunteer coordinators who would be responsible for the administration of the group and not involved in any childcare.

If you would like the opportunity to volunteer for this community role please contact: info@ebmc.org.uk.
