Rabbi Danny Rich, Chief Executive of Liberal Judaism, Iman Suliman Gani, Muslim Chaplain of St. George’s Hospital and The Rt. Reverand Jonathan Clark, Bishop of Croydon, joined the Citizens UK campaign, and are pictured at the Kindertransport Monument at Liverpool St. station
Liberal Judaism chief executive Rabbi Danny Rich said: “The main ritual of Sukkot is that we spend time in a temporary dwelling place. It is a tradition to welcome visitors into that temporary dwelling. That has gone on for a couple of thousand years. There are thousands of refugees from Syria living in temporary conditions because they can’t live anywhere else because their homes have been destroyed. Jews are a people who know what it is to be refugees, for all the reasons of our history. In those circumstances, it is appropriate that we should try and get local synagogues, mosques and churches to see if we can do something for Syrian refugees.”
For Mitzvah Day 2013, KLS collected donations for the Kingston Food Bank. We have decided to do it for the whole of the year 5775, not just for Mitzvah Day. There is a collection bin in the Mosaic Room, and you can find the list of acceptable donations here: Kingston-FB-website-shopping-list.

Sam Alston is back to run KLS’ own Jewish Youth Club – re-starting on the 6th September 1-3.30pm (after Beiteinu, Family Service, and the HeBrew Cafe). This month we will be having “getting to know you” games with a desert island discs twist and giving participants an opportunity to decide what they want to do over the next term.
The South London coach returned lots of happy, exhausted KLS children from their two weeks of fun, mayhem and digital detox yesterday. Washing machines across Surrey will be working overtime to deal with the potentially toxic contents of the suitcases! And the wifi will be creaking in their homes as they desperately try to make up for not being online for 2 weeks – how did they manage?! Well, that’s the story in our house. They have a week to rest before Beiteinu starts for the new school year on Saturday 6 September. Don’t forget to bring your fruit. Beiteinu starts at 9.45am, the Book Group is from 10am-11am, there will be a family service at 11.30am, followed by the ever-popular HeBrew Cafe, and then the Youth Club from 1-3pm.
“The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary, uttered these words on the eve of Britain officially entered the First World War. Exactly 100 years later the Royal British Legion is inviting millions of individuals, households and companies to join together in a national moment of reflection.
The Royal British Legion is encouraging everyone in the UK to turn off their lights between 10pm and 11pm on 4 August 2014 – leaving only a single light or candle for this symbolic act of reflection and hope. Click here for more information.
