We're getting ready for Chanukah!

Chanukah is an eight day holiday which begins on the 25th day of the month of Kislev. It marks the miraculous victory of the Jews, led by the Maccabees, against Greek persecution and religious oppression. In addition to being victorious in war, another miracle occurred: When the Maccabees came to rededicate the Temple, the found only one flask of oil with which to light the Menorah. This small flask lasted for eight days.

In order to commemorate this miracle, we light a Menorah for the eight days of Chanukah. This year Chanukah 2014 begins in the evening of Tuesday, December 16 and ends in the evening of Wednesday, December 24.  On the evening before each one of the days, the corresponding number of Chanukah candles are lit.

Please join us for our ANNUAL CHANUKAH PARTY, motzei Shabbat on Saturday 20th December from 5:30pm - 7:00pm  The Borehamwood and Elstree Children's Centre (BECC), Shakespeare Drive, off Furzehill Road, Borehamwood, WD6 2FD. All are welcome. Only £5 entry fee per family.

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.
