MOHOLO MONTHLY EMAIL - STEP RIGHT UP IT'S FESTIVAL TIME!

HELLO MOISHE CREW, New and old!

Hope you have been enjoying the crazy summer season. We have been taking full advantage of the weather having many days of reggae garden sessions, late night jams and general summer warmth.

We have an exciting month of bringing a fresh slant to the festival season. We are supplying an alternative way to experience and connect to the high holidays and beyond. Come and reflect in a way that you never have before, come and enjoy services that are inclusive, fresh, colourful and dare I say, exciting! Then come and party in our Succah, which will be bigger and better than it has ever been....Now there's a challenge!

So, we would firstly like to welcome Alli Zionts our new house mate who has come all the way from Pittsburgh, USA. It has only been a few days and we have already found out she bakes incredible Challah. She has come in as we have said goodbye to Tali, who is now parading the deserts of Nevada, and after saving lives in South America.

We also have Jess Lenza with us for a month while Rachel is spinning yarns in Edinburgh and Jess has already been getting down on the guitar and livening up the last few events with her tunes and singing.

So, onwards with the events....

    Ellul Bootcamp


 MOISHE HOUSE LONDON
     
Sunday, September 5 from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm
"EllulFest" AKA "Ellul Boot Camp" for Grassroots Jews, is a day of learning, creativity, singing, meditating and reflecting in preparation for the High Holy Days. It will be between 1-7pm at MoHoLo. The themes include, but are not restricted to, new beginnings, repentence, resolutions, reflection and renewal. There will be art spaces, workshops, taster sessions, a silent meditation area, and the day will culminate with song-teaching, singing and the blowing of the Shofar. With the combined energy of the Ellul Art Warriors (not unlike the Planeteers combining to summon Captain Planet), We think this will be an unmissable day.



 

Pizza and Politics with NIF New Gen


Moishe House London, Willesden Green

Join us on Sunday 5 September at 7pm at Moishe House, for an evening in (we hope) the garden. We'll be discussing Israel – how we feel about what it's doing, how we in the Diaspora are affected by its actions, and how we, as a result, choose to defend or critique it.

It's going to be very much a safe space where we can openly discuss an often emotive and divisive subject. Bring along articles you've read, thoughts that will prov...oke debate, insights you've picked up that have affected your current views on Israel… and come with an open mind.

RSVP to NIFNewGen@gmail.com by Friday 27 August, and let us know of any dietary requirements for the pizza-ordering! We'll then let you know the address of Moishe House.

A £7 door charge will go to covering the cost of the event.

So if you want to be part of an avowedly inclusive community. If you ever sat in Shul and thought "there must be more to it than this". If you want to be part of a huge, and potentially risky social experiment. If you know in your heart of hearts and the very depths of your soul that one of the best times you had in a minyan in London was with WJ, Carlebach Minyan or MoHoLo. Even just the once. Then please come and join us.

We are delighted that Yossi Chajes, our wonderful chazan, will be back again this year.

… looking forward to your heartfelt support, your homebaked cakes, your leyning skills, your organisational spreadsheets and your friendly faces, babies and grandparents and any one who wants to make sure shul on RH is warm and vibrant and makes you want to learn more, get in touch with your traditions and your tunes and your ways of doing things differently
