Friday 3 – Sunday 5 November 2017 – Northern Chagigah. Northern Chagigah is where all of our northern communities meet together for a weekend of relaxation, learning, praying and fun. This year we are in a new location, Easingwold just 19 miles north of York. Everyone comes for different reasons – to be spiritually recharged, to enjoy a Shabbat away from everyday routine, to be delighted that the children are being looked after and Jewishly engaged by RSY-Netzer or the creche (if they’re under 5), for the learning experiences or just for a lovely weekend where your meals are cooked for you and you can completely relax, unwind and switch off. (We have even heard rumours that some people come just for the evenings in the bar with new friends and lazy mornings in bed!). To see the programme and to register online go to www.reformjudaism.org.uk/events/northernchagigah/ if you have any questions call Sarita on 07415 274 362 or contact

Northern Learning House is an informal network of Reform individuals in communities in the north and beyond who want to commit to learning and supporting their communities. Run by Sherry Ashworth and Sarita Robinson, the NLH is funded by Reform Judaism’s Community Development Fund. Places are heavily subsidised to a registration fee of £60 per year which covers not only as many courses as you have time to take, but also a residential Shabbat where you can meet fellow students, as a considerable part of our teaching is online, in order to extend our reach as far as possible.
Planned as a 2- year programme, NLH can be completed in one year if you wish and is designed to respond to the needs of our communities; none of the courses is obligatory – if you wish to pick and mix modules from each year, or just choose one, you are more than welcome to register and indicate which course(s) you would like to do. Courses include Intro to Service Leading, Writing Divrei Torah, Leading Shivah & pastoral Care and Leyning for beginners and intermediate. For further information email Sherry Ashworth or for more details and to register www.reformjudaism.org.uk/events/nlh/
