Shorashim


500 GUESTS SHABBAT CELEBRATION IS BACK!
Friday, 22nd February 2019

There are approximately 500 souls in our UJC family. That's a pretty big mishpacha. Without some effrot it isn't possible to know one another as well as we should. So...

On Friday night, 22nd February 2019, we hope that every single UJC member will either host a Shabbat dinner fo other UJC members in their home or attend one of these dinners. The aim for us all to spend a joyous, haimish Shabbat evening meeting new people and turning acquaintances into friends.

(See
"UJC 500 Guests FAQ" for more details.)

This is a huge undertaking. We need HELP!

UJC BOOK GROUP - THE BOOKHERS


The UJC’s Book Group, The Bookhers is for anyone who likes to read and discuss Jewish books — fiction, memoir, biography — it will be up to the group to select. And of course, we’ll have a nosh too.

The UJC Bookhers will meet on Wednesday, 9th January at 7:30pm in the Rabbi's Flat. We'll be discussing Total Recall (V.I. Warshawski Novels Book 10) by Sara Paretsky.

Total Recall follows the Chicago Private Investigator V. I Warshawsky on a road that winds back more than fifty years - and into an intricate maze of wartime lies, heartbreaking secrets, and harrowing retribution.

Publisher's Weekly says: "Already having established herself as an inventor of the female private eye and a master of the mystery format, Paretsky skillfully expands the form to tackle several convergent themes in a moving novel of discovery and redemption."

Don't worry if you haven't read any other books in the series - you can dive right in here!

To help us plan, please RSVP to The UJC office by Tuesday, 8th January.
