June already

Summer. Lots of events. Events events events events events.

It is very easy to think of Moishe House London, and the other stellar groups in our sparkling community constellation, as event-based organisations. And on one level that's what we are.

But actually we're a community.

Of course that means different things to different people. But it tends to work like this. You come to, yes, an event or two. And you meet the people who also come here and you start to discover there's something about this place and these people, and soon they're your people too and you want to spend time with them in other contexts and combinations. And you want to contribute - and spend time round here when there's not an event on.

And then, what do you know, your life is changed. For real.

Well, it's almost Shavuot now and I have to go and cook some cheese ('What did the cheese say when he looked in the mirror? Haloumi!') so I will now get off my soap box and tell you about... our events.

But before I do (and talking of changing lives) we're soon going to launch a kind of Grassroots MoHoLo social justice fellowship, for a group of people to receive training and be paired with a disadvantaged child to mentor, and meet up however often it suits them for social justice learning and skills. Email thelondonhouse@gmail.com if you think you might be interested.
