Yom Hashoah

We lit six candles to commemorate the six million who died at a short Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day) service. The beautiful flowers come from our own shul garden.


Visit to the Jewish Museum

On Sunday 7th September the Cheder class went to the Jewish Museum in Camden. We all met there at 10 o’clock and had a very informative, educational and moving time.

 

The first part was about objects from the Synagogue and the home. From the Synagogue there was an ark, siferi torah (scrolls) yudayim, and a collection of Nerot Tamid. From the home there was a Seder plate, a kippah and a room set up like it was Shabbat.

The first thing we saw was a Bar Mitzvah coat worn by a boy for his Bar Mitzvah in Burkhera. He would have worn it for the High Holy days but his family then moved to England. We learned about when and where British Jews settled, how they were treated and how they lived. We saw how Jews have contributed to British Society.   

The final thing we saw was a gallery dedicated to Leon Greenman, who was a British survivor of the Concentration Camps. He was living in the Netherlands when the war broke out and he could not prove he was British. His wife and son were murdered by the Nazis but he survived and went on to tell young people about what had happened.

It was important for me to go there because I learned about my heritage and how my ancestors lived as British Jews.
