A Healthy Debate 
Women’s issues have been in the news lately. In an exclusive article for You & US, Leonie Lewis and Dalia Cramer, co-Chairs of US Women share their thoughts about what they consider to be an important and healthy debate.

Have Your Say! 
Thank you to all who have already completed The US members’ survey. We’ve had a good response but really want to hear from more people. Do please take the time to let us know your views. If you haven’t received your own unique survey link (it might be hiding in your junk-mail folder!), please emailsurvey@theus.org.uk with your Name, Shul and Postcode and we will send yours to you.

There will be a community screening at Finchley Synagogue on Sunday 11th May. For more information and to register visit www.jewishgeneticdisordersuk.org
