Our perspectives on the Holocaust have undoubtedly been shaped by the stories and memoirs left to us by those who experienced the horrors first hand. From Anne Frank to Elie Wiesel, it's difficult to discuss the Shoah without relying on their words and works.
These two sessions, however, will look at the Holocaust in a different light: focusing solely on contemporaneous written accounts from people living outside the Nazis’ realm of influence. How did North American Jewry respond to the crisis? British Jewry? What lessons can be learned from examining the news of the day during one of the greatest human-made disasters in modern history?
Join these two sessions to explore a new understanding of what it means to never forget.
With Rabbi Emily Reitsma-Jurman

Following on from Hendon Reform Synagogue's success at running a Night Shelter for the homeless of Barnet, we held an information evening on 5th of June to discuss the possibility of running a Night Shelter at EHRS.
The evening was well attended with representatives of the charities Together In Barnet (TiB), Homeless Action in Barnet (HAB) and social enterprise Linkey present along with people from the EHRS community who want to volunteer.
The ask from our community is to provide a hot evening meal, shelter for the night and breakfast in the morning for up to 17 homeless people who have a connection with Barnet.
