pring is almost upon us at long last and with it comes new growth. New at KLS is the first of a series of discussions of Liberal Jewish attitudes to some important topics and these will follow the third Friday Night service of the month (page 6). The arrival of spring also means Pesach is just around the corner. At this month’s Shabbat Olam service we will be sharing each other’s Pesach traditions (page 6). Don’t forget to book your place at our communal seder—the organisers need to know numbers now so that there will be enough food!

Matilda My family saw Matilda at the theatre to celebrate my twins’ birthday. It was good, but not great, but with incredible performances from children. But the sound quality was poor. I don’t expect to hear everything as I have a big hearing loss; but even my children struggled. On reflection, I am not going to see Great Expectations, because I am bound to be disappointed.

WRESTLING WITH ISRAEL Setting up a Grassroots Israel Group (GIG) Judy Thwaites explains what we all can do to participate and contribute to a more balanced debate about Israel and Palestine drawing on the experiences and suggestions of experts who spoke at KLS’s “Wrestling with Israel” course at the end of last year.
