August at Moishe House London

It's a relatively quiet month events-wise but there's still a lot brewing and we're building up for the big one, Grassroots Jews Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services, this year to be hosted at none other than the Moishe House. Read on for details and get those tickets booked before it sells out like last year...

GRASSROOTS JEWS, 8-10 & 17-18 September: This year Moishe House London is the venue for Grassroots Jews, independent High Holiday services from the people who bring you some of London's best loved grassroots groups - Carlebach Minyan, Wandering Jews and Moishe House London.

Our services will be traditional (and perhaps not so traditional in parts) and halachic. There will be some seating separated by a mechitza and there will also be an area of seating where anyone can sit where you like. Women will be called up to the Torah in accordance with halacha. At the same time – free wheeling, open, free to come and go, chill out spaces, cushions, tents, friendly, space for mothers and babies.

Tickets are on sale now. Grassroots totally sold out last year and will probably sell out quicker this year, so visit the Grassroots blog, get more info and book your tickets now: http://grassrootsjewishnewyearproject.wordpress.com/

The film presents a unique and close characterisation of the celebrated writer and Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. Filmed only a few short years before he died, it depicts the author looking back on his professional and life experiences.
