'Our first twinning interfunction'
Date Uploaded: 
Thursday 11th May 2017

On Sunday May 7th, Sheffield & Solihull Synagogues had their first official interfunction since the two communities decided to twin.

Solihull and Sheffield are about one and a half hours apart which makes it possible to meet together for the day.

28 members of the Solihull community and 35 members of the Sheffield community had a great day together.

The event started with a nice cup of tea on arrival, supported by delicious biscuits. Rabbi Golomb then gave our Solihull visitors a tour of the synagogue which was built in 2001 and of which Sheffield is very proud. A delicious lunch was followed by a quiz, when Solihull and Sheffield pitted their wits against each other and the resulting draw made everyone feel very happy. The day finished as it had started, with a nice cup of tea and as we waved the Solihull bus cheerio, we started planning for our next meeting.

Thank you Chief Rabbi for proposing such a good idea.
