A Weekend of Music and Celebrations

Members of KLS enjoyed a weekend of music and celebrations at events hosted by Liberal Judaism.

On Saturday 22 June, they attended the Day of Music at Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue.  Among the many musical sessions was one hosted by KLS’s own Musical Director, Rebekka Weddell, who led a choral group singing her own composition ‘Kol Korei’ (A Voice is Calling). The day concluded with an informal concert of music-making.

Liberal Judaism’s Day of Celebration was held the following day.  The theme of the day was “If  I am  only for myself” and there was a wide choice of sessions with themes such as volunteering, safeguarding and inclusion as well as keynote speakers Dame Margaret Hodge and Jean Gaffin OBE.

Overall it was a highly enjoyable, uplifting and thought provoking weekend!
