17th December 2019: Almost 80 senior members and volunteers of Borehamwood and Elstree United Synagogue attended a celebratory lunch ahead of the start of the festival of Chanukah. Participants of the annual event indulged in a three course meal catered by Eat Me Events, before being treated to a musical performance by Paul Gerschlick and joining in festive singing led by Rabbi Alan Garber.

Rabbi Alex Chapper inspired members with a talk bringing to life the miracle of the Chanukah story and the parallels that can be found in modern-day life.  

Karen Moss, Community Support Coordinator, explained: “In modern society, when many people feel so alone, it is wonderful to create opportunities to get together as a community, chat and share stories. This would not have been possible without our very kind and dedicated volunteers, from as young as five years old, who helped make everyone feel special!”
