Hopefully by now the Megillah is safely rolled away for another year and Pesach is now firmly in your sights. All the latest Pesach information can be found by clicking here.

We need your Dough this Pesach 
With only just a month to go until Pesach there are many families who are dreading it. Pesach for them means spending money they simply don’t have. Over 600 families rely on us to rescue their Pesach. Please, this year as you get rid of your chametz, will you give us some dough? Look out for your appeal mailing or Click here to donate now!

US Votes Overwhelmingly For Women Trustees 
At a crowded meeting of the US council on Monday evening the resolution to enable the organisation to elect women trustees was passed by an overwhelming majority. Click here to read the full story.

Have your say 
As previously reported in You & US, the United Synagogue is undergoing a Strategic Review that will shape the future of our community for years to come. Every part of The US is being reviewed and an enormous range of stakeholders are providing their views. Perhaps the most important views of all are those of the members, and in order to capture these a comprehensive member survey will be going live within the next fortnight. What you think matters a great deal – don’t miss out on your chance to have your say. If there’s something you really like (or dislike) this is your opportunity to influence the issues that you care about. The survey will be completely confidential so look out for your link to the survey in your inbox and tell us what you really think!

Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom.
