With the recent anti-Semitic attacks in Brussels and Paris, we are painfully reminded that our security cannot be taken lightly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by these terrible events. These attacks show just how important organisations like the CST are to Jews in the UK. We work closely with the CST to ensure that our communities are safe and secure but in order to continually keep the community safe, funding needs to continue as well. This week you should be receiving our annual security appeal. Please give it all the support you can.  

Shavuot
This Tuesday night is the festival of Shavuot. For times and articles click here. To help whet your appetite for the annual and obligatory cheesecake devouring, we thought we’d taste some of the best cheesecakes that KLBD bakeries have to offer, with the best being crowned You & US’ ‘Cheesecake of the Year’. Entrants were Daniel’s, Golan, Just Kosher, La Brioche and Munch & Crunch. Click here to read the full article. 

If you are looking for a healthier cheesecake, why not try Coyo which is now KLBD certified. We have also included 2 recipes for you to try! Click here to see which other products are also now KLBD certified. 

This year Tribe and Bnei Akiva have teamed-up to make a learning card, which will be available from US synagogues and university campuses. Click here to download a copy.
