For Ruach staff, the Spring Term started with an inspiring training day, organised jointly by Liberal Judaism and Reform Judaism. We had the opportunity to learn with a wide variety of experts and to meet colleagues from across London and the South East. Everyone came home energised and enthused for the coming term.
The Spring term is a short term, but it includes a number of festival celebrations. On 11th March we will be celebrating Purim, and on 25th
March we will hold our Ruach Pesach Seder. All children in the community are welcome. Please let Shelley know if you want to bring your child along: firstname.lastname@example.org
Meanwhile, during February, Ruach students and their guests celebrated Tu Bishevat, the New Year for Trees, with a Tu Bishevat Seder on 4th February. The youngest and oldest students (Lucy Grant and Ilana and Daniel Keren) also planted a plum tree in the garden, next to the olive tree that we planted last year on Tu Bishevat. Many thanks to Rachelle Ellenby for preparing all the fruit that
we tasted during the Seder, and also to Natalie Baynes for choosing the plum tree.
Meanwhile, our parent and toddler group, Mini-Ruach,
is continuing on the second and fourth Friday of the month, together with occasional Saturdays. Come along and join the fun! (Please add pictures)
Mini-Ruach is open to both members and to non-members. It is for babies and children under 5, accompanied by an adult.
