Shavuot 2018

In the Hebrew year 2448, just weeks after leaving Egypt, we all stood together at the foot of Mount Sinai where G-d gave the Torah.

3,330 years later, we are still celebrating!
We re-live the Sinai experience and the Giving Of The Torah by hearing the 10 Commandments being read from the Torah on Shavuot morning and enjoying dairy foods. (Cheesecake is a favourite, although customary not obligatory.)

Rabbi Mendy & Chaya Singer will be hosting a celebration this weekend at the Park Row Synagogue on Shavuot morning for the reading of the 10 Commandments and a Grand Dairy Feast (vegan options too) following the prayer service. On Sunday, 20 May, 11am. We hope you can join us.

As Children are the future and the ones who carry the Torah on to the next generation, they will be included in the celebration with a fun Children’s Service and Ice Cream Party!

Looking forward to celebrating together this Sunday.

Un Wine’d- Wine Tasting – 15 May, 2018

What does Kosher wine bring to mind? Palwin or Kedem?

You may be amazed at how the kosher wine market has developed over recent years. Today there are many award-winning kosher wines available. The best selling Moscato in the USA happens to be Kosher, with only a fraction of its sales actually to the Kosher market!

On Tuesday evening 15 MayWine educator Ian Abrahams Dip WSET will be leading us with a guided tasting of eight selected wines. From California Zinfandel to Israeli Chardonnay to French Riesling to Spanish Rioja there will be something for all tastes.

Served up with fine Kosher cheeses and light refreshments, this will be an evening to Un•wine•d in great company!

Tickets are £12 online at www.jewishbristol.com/wine or £15 at the door.
15 May, 7:30 PM at the Park Row Synagogue.

We look forward to meeting you at this unique and special evening.
