Wittenberg's new book,
Shavuot (literally "Weeks") is a Jewish holiday that occurs on the sixth day of the Hebrew month of Sivan (19th May, 2010). Shavuot commemorates the anniversary of the day God gave the Ten Commandments to Moses and the Israelites at Mount Sinai, although the association between the giving of the Torah (Matan Torah) and Shavuot is not explicit in the Biblical text. The holiday is one of the shalosh regalim, the three Biblical pilgrimage festivals. It marks the conclusion of the Counting of the Omer.
The date of Shavuot is directly linked to that of Passover. The Torah mandates the seven-week Counting of the Omer, beginning on the second day of Passover and immediately followed by Shavuot. This counting of days and weeks is understood to express anticipation and desire for the Giving of the Torah. On Passover, the Jewish people were freed from their enslavement to Pharaoh; on Shavuot they were given the Torah and became a nation committed to serving God.

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.
in Year 6 can attend our Senior unit so please feel free to email

FIRST JEWISH WOODLAND BURIAL SITE IN THE UK
The Jewish Joint Burial Society (JJBS), which provides funeral services for 35 Reform, Masorti and Liberal congregations, has acquired a freehold parcel of land for the purposes of woodland and other burials. This is the first time woodland burials have been possible in a Jewish cemetery in the UK and it is believed to be the first faith woodland cemetery in the country. Members can now choose to be buried in an ecologically friendly way in a natural environment surrounded by newly planted trees. The burial can include a coffin made from bamboo or cardboard which decomposes naturally and instead of a large headstone there will be a small memorial plaque. read more...
Come learn some Hebrew, speak some Hebrew, or just be around Hebrew!
Thursday evenings at 7.30pm.

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: firstname.lastname@example.org.
