We are looking forward to Lunch Club continuing with Lunch served at 12.15pm in the SWESRS Function Hall.  The Speakers will start from 1.30pm, to allow those using Zoom to join the session from 1.20pm.  The afternoon will end between 2.15 and 2.30pm.  For those attending at SWESRS, the cost for the lunch will be £6.00.

PROGRAMME - Note all speakers will be ‘live’ from SWESRS and zoomed out unless otherwise stated:

Tuesday,  8 February: We are delighted to be giving a very warm welcome to SWESRS newly appointed Senior Rabbi, Rabbi Jordan Helfman, who has crossed The Pond with his family, all the way from Canada, to take up post with our Community from 1 January.  We feel this opening meeting of the year would present the ideal opportunity for Rabbi Jordan to meet our Lunch Club Membership and to introduce himself to everyone.

Tuesday, 22 February: Daniel Morgan-Thomas, who, since 2018, has been the Labour Party Representative for Wanstead Village Ward on the Redbridge Council, will be telling us about 'The Life of a Local Councillor under 40 - breaking the mould?.   Daniel is not yet 30!

Tuesday, 8 March: Lunch Club's very own Member, Leslie Bloom, will be inviting you to 'Rewind your Mind' with a presentation of extracts from favourite steam radio programmes over the decades from the latter part of the 'Forties'!

Tuesday, 22 March: It is with great pleasure that we are welcoming back Rabbi Henry Goldstein.  This time, his topic will be 'The Lion's Tail' - an account of his experiences, plus insights when, as a young man, he worked for the film company Metro Goldwyn Mayer.

Tuesday, 5 April: The term will round off with a relaxing afternoon of music with the wonderful Gary Benjafield, who will sing favourites old and new.

We really look forward to resuming, to meeting again with previously regular members and to welcoming people who have never been before.  Please telephone the Synagogue Office – 020 8599 0936 to book your place.
