New Year resolution It is the difference between a lunar year (354 days) and a solar year (365Âź days) that causes the Jewish year to begin on different dates in September or October. This year sees Rosh ha-Shanah fall almost at the end of September, which has a number of consequences. Firstly it means that Yom Kippur falls in October, so the fast, which technically ends at sunset, concludes earlier than it will next year, for example, when Yom Kippur will be earlier than Rosh ha-Shanah is this year! More significant, however, is the fact that this year we have virtually the whole of the month of September to get ready for the High Holydays. It is traditional to use the Hebrew month preceding the New Year to prepare for the rigours of Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur. As Elul, the month before Tishri, begins on August 31st 2011, there is a whole four weeks to engage in this preparation. At The Liberal Synagogue Elstree, there are a number of ways
we are going to take advantage of this period of time. Our two adult education programmes: Basic Judaism and the Thursday Night sessions, will focus on the High Holydays. The Basic Judaism course (primarily intended for those converting to Judaism but open to all) will look at the history and origins of these powerful festivals. That class meets on Saturday 10th September at 12.45pm and Friday 23rd September at 8.30 pm. The Thursday night sessions will take place on September 8th, 15th, 22nd and October 6th at 7.45pm. These very practical sessions will look at the content of the prayers we shall read during the High Holydays and actually spend some time reminding ourselves of the tunes we shall be singing. So if you want to enter this yearâ€™s services with a greater sense of what we are reading and why, and be able to participate more, then why not take part in our special Elul programme? And why end your involvement there? When the sun sets on Saturday 8th October and you go home to break your fast, will that be your final involvement with your shul until September 17th 2012, when these High Holydays come
round again? There is a lot going on at The Liberal Synagogue Elstree, so why not resolve to be part of what’s happening in the coming year? As you will see on the enclosed High Holyday ticket(s), we have a range of things on offer for our growing community here at TLSE. Our weekly Religion School continues to attract more and more young people and there is a range of other activities for our youth: next month will see the launch of a new post bar-/batmitzvah group in addition to Our Space and Kabbalat Torah. There will be an exciting Thursday night adult education programme, building on the success of last year’s new scheme. Our monthly lunch club, on the last Tuesday of every month, continues to attract ever higher numbers as does our Friday night service and supper on the first Friday - proving that food is always an attraction when it comes to getting people to come to the shul! But there are other opportunities as well. We have a monthly tots’ service for our youngest members - and
of course we have a service every Saturday morning for everyone. And please don’t be put off by the fact that we have more than twenty bar- and bat-mitzvah ceremonies in the coming year: there will always be room for members of our congregation. The car park is reserved for members only and the number of invited guests is strictly limited to ensure that there is room for our regular members to take part in all our services. And we’ll be organizing a whole range of social events for our members this coming year. So as well as using the month of Elul to prepare for the Jewish New Year, how about making a promise during the forthcoming High Holydays that your next visit to an event organized by The Liberal Synagogue Elstree won’t be the Rosh ha-Shanah service in September 2012? A happy and healthy new year to all, and I look forward to seeing you during Elul, over yom tov and in the coming year.
Rabbi Pete Tobias
Is your child about to enter school year 7? Will they turn 13 between September ’12 and August ’13? Will they want a bar-/bat-mitzvah ceremony? If the answer to these questions is ‘yes’ then you won’t want to miss the special meeting taking place at the synagogue on
Sunday 25 September 12.45 - 1.30 pm
Religion School Time for a new start! Religion School will be up and running after the Garden Party, and we’re looking forward to another exciting year! It all kicks off at 10.00am on Sunday 18th September when we’ll start preparing for our Rosh ha-Shanah and Yom Kippur services, which will be an important feature of this year’s High Holyday celebrations. And there will be the usual Hebrew groups, working with your dedicated teachers and a new Jewish Studies programme which will be looking at the way we pray and the things we say. Look forward to seeing you for our new term on these dates in September: Sunday 18th Sunday 25th
10.00am – 12.15pm 10.00am – 12.15pm
And parents: please join us at 12.15pm for the Religion School service to end the morning.
Bar-/Bat-Mitzvah Class And off we go again! Back to the beginning of ‘Never Mind the Bullocks’ for another year: the beginning of a whole flurry of bar- and bat-mitzvah ceremonies - nine between now and the end of 2011! So we’ll try and squeeze all of you into Our Space upstairs for your classes - and don’t forget you’re expected to stay for the service afterwards as well... The bar-/bat-mitzvah class meets on the following dates in September: Saturday 10th Saturday 17th
9.30am – 10.45am 9.30am – 10.45am
And as you’ll see elsewhere, there will be a special meeting for those thinking of celebrating their bar-/bat-mitzvah ceremonies in 2013 on Sunday 25th September at 12.45pm. Those families to whom this applies will be contacted directly with an invitation to this meeting.
Kabbalat Torah The KT 2011 group has returned from Berlin and is now getting ready for two important events - the KT weekend in December and the Additional Service on Yom Kippur. We’ll be preparing for the Yom Kippur service in our next few sessions; the dates for those are: Sunday 4th Sept Sunday 18th Sept Sunday 2nd Oct
midday - 1.30pm (incl lunch!) 4.30pm - 5.45pm 12.45pm - 2.30pm
Adult Education Basic Judaism discussions continue to take place regularly with one class on a Friday evening and one on a Saturday lunchtime. The basic text for these classes is Rabbi Pete’s ‘Liberal Judaism: A Judaism for the Twenty-First Century’ which is available at shul, priced £9.99. Although these classes are primarily intended for those converting to Judaism, other members are welcome to join the group, which meets after the service on the following dates: September 2011: Saturday 10th Friday 23rd
The Jewish Festivals 2: Biblical pilgrim festivals The Jewish Festivals 3: High Holydays
On the Friday evening, the service commences at 8.00pm and will be followed by the study session which normally concludes no later than 9.30pm. On Saturdays, the class will also follow the 11.00am service, starting at around 12.45pm and ending at 1.45pm. Refreshments will be available. Please note that those involved in the conversion programme are expected to attend the service as well as the class that follows it: attendance at services is an integral part of the conversion course.
Thursdays at TLSE The opening session of our Thursday night adult education programme for September 2011 will focus on preparing for the forthcoming High Holydays. The Thursday night sessions will look at the prayers we shall be reading and the songs we shall be singing; what they sound like and what they mean. The details are as follows: Track A: Mini course (4 sessions) The High Holydays: This course will look at the High Holyday liturgy: its history and development, its themes and how to read and sing it. This mini course will have a practical focus, enabling participants to prepare for Rosh ha-Shanah and Yom Kippur, encouraging a greater understanding of and participation in the services we shall soon be celebrating. A copy of the High Holyday Machzor is essential; copies can be purchased at the synagogue if you do not already have one. September 8th September 15th September 22nd October 6th

The programme for the remainder of 2011 will be discussed at the opening session on September 8th; if you have any suggestions for topics, guest speakers or films, please contact Rabbi Pete: firstname.lastname@example.org Liberal Judaism and LJY-Netzer would like to introduce our new Student Worker, Adam Francies, and Student Chaplain, Rabbi Ariel Friedlander. They are here to help students and those of student age through University, Gap Years and simply be a listening ear. Please donâ€™t hestitate to contact them for information about what is on offer this year or with any questions about the year ahead. You can contact Adam by emailing email@example.com and Ariel can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
KT Berlin 2011 They came, they saw - well, some of it anyway… The story of the almost legendary KT trip to Berlin 2011 version is one of things going missing. The following venues presented challenges to Rabbi Pete and the all-female crew of Maya de Mello, Nellie Kirsh, Abby Posner, HannahRose Posner, Miriam Quinn, Rachel Renak and Hollie Walton plus adult helpers Rebecca Davey and Alice Tibble: The Holocaust Memorial at Platform 17; The Amstel House youth hostel; The Pizza Restaurant on the corner of Oranienburger Strasse; The Sony Centre
(Rabbi Pete claims that items 1 and 3 were not his fault: the entrance to the Memorial was clearly sealed and there was no sign directing visitors to an alternative entrance, and the Pizza restaurant, which still owes Adam Renak a portion of chips from 5 years ago, had closed down (guess that does it for the chips, Adam!) Rabbi Pete apologises for the senior moment that led to him failing to read the map properly and turning a five minute walk from the station to the hostel into a twenty minute one, but insists that the Sony Centre near Potsdamer Platz has definitely moved since
last year (which of course it hasn’t). In between these setbacks, the group experienced the sights of Berlin, concentrating on the questions of restrictions on personal liberty and remembering the victims of the Holocaust that the city inspires. They also managed to avoid being injured by Miriam’s flying case, stopped Hannah-Rose buying something from every single shop and spent more time on Berlin’s train system than anywhere else. The KT group will now begin preparing for the Yom Kippur Additional service and its weekend of services in December.

The Jewish Helpline (Miyad) was set up some 25 years ago after a young woman with a little boy, living in Hendon, committed suicide.Various people wondered whether she could have been helped if there had been someone for her to turn to. Out of this tragedy, The Jewish Helpline (Miyad) was born. We are immensely proud of the service we provide to people across the Jewish community who are in crises. We provide a lifeline to those who are need a “listening ear” for problems they are encountering or who are experiencing feeling lonely, anxious, depressed or suicidal. We are open from 12 noon to 12 midnight every day except Friday (shortened hours), Shabbat and Yom Tovim. We reach people across the entire spectrum of Judaism. People from every walk of life have problems and sometimes even in a close-knit family or community it is easier to talk to an anonymous but warm and caring voice. Some of our callers contact us because they are facing drug, family or mental health problems, others call to talk through their loneliness, depression and a myriad of different issues. The line is staffed by professionally trained volunteers from the community. They are all trained to listen. They do not judge or try to give advice but help callers talk through their fears, worries and difficulties. H ALT S HE LEM OB PR

Do you drive a car or van?
Then help secure your vehicle and keep thieves at bay by following some simple crime prevention measures. Thieves are opportunistic and even if there is nothing obvious on display in a vehicle, they may take their chances and break in anyway. So hiding any valuable items under a seat or in the boot may not keep them safe. Simple measures can make a big difference in reducing the risk of theft: remove anything of value-your laptop, purse or wallet, mobile phone, tools or sporting equipment-and keep all other possessions (eg clothing, CDs etc) out of sight. The few moments it takes you to take your valuables with you could save you a lot of time and inconvenience in the future. Other tips include: • Never leave any valuables in your vehicle-not even in the glove box or boot, and keep all other possessions out of sight • Remove your sat nav and its holder, and wipe away any suction marks, as these could suggest to a potential thief that a sat nav is stored in your vehicle • Use an approved steering lock or gar clamp, and remember to set your immobiliser and alarm if you have them • Register your stereo, laptop, sat nav and any other property on a free online property database such as http;//www.immobilise.com/. it is quick and easy to do and could help police trace your property if it is lost or stolen. • At home, use a garage to park your car overnight if you have one and keep car and house keys out of sight. Do not leave them on display on window ledges, in porches, hallways or kitchens for example. • Look out for car parks with a Park Mark ™ Safer parking sign, which have recognised levels of security.

Volunteers Needed Thank you to everyone who has volunteered over the past few months. Emails are slowly coming in with offers of help which is wonderful. As autumn approaches The High Holidays are looming so the synagogue will need your help. This year we are reactivating a more stringent Stewarding Rota. Some people will receive a letter asking for your help but if you would like to volunteer to do a stewarding stint please contact Penny@pennyberal.co.uk. We recognise that members with young children, on their own or already involved may not want to steward but there are a lot of other members who could do an hour’s stewarding over all the High Holidays.
It can be very disruptive and disturbing to congregants when adults and children come into the Hall just at a quiet time or during a particular prayer. Decorum is so important to the services and helps give them meaning and spirituality. Please help us to ensure each and everyone of us is able to pray peacefully this year. Tuesday Lunch club meets the last Tuesday of every month. This is very sociable event with a 3 course lunch and a speaker, a chance to catch up with old friends. However the Car Park gets very congested and Lunch Club is looking for someone to help with supervising the Car Park on these days and then of course your chance to chat to others and have a lovely lunch. Do you have a couple of hours once a month to spare? Currently either Rabbi Pete, Harry Hurst or Rebecca Davey supervise the Car Park, it would be ideal if others can help out. Please remember that the Volunteer Data Base is for everyone’s benefit. If you identify something you’d like to help with in the synagogue please contact me Penny Beral at Penny@pennyberal.co.uk or 01923 855367
