Membership & Community Letter of Anshei Shalom for 5782 (2021-22), 1 Ellul 5781

Dear Kahal HaKadosh

We cannot hide the fact that the pandemic resulted in the most challenging year any of us have experienced. When we were writing last Ellul, we truly believed that the worst was behind us, but Hashem had other plans.

Not only were we unable to plan and put on events and speakers, but our regular minyanim were massively disrupted through to Pourim. With Covid restrictions relaxing in the past few weeks, we are quietly optimistic that more regular programming will be able to recommence after the haggim.

Whilst Covid-19 devastated our functioning and finances, the silver lining was that our costs were also reduced and because of the generosity of many of you, we were able to survive. As we recover from the effects of Covid though, we are now having to deal with the fall-out of Brexit and the impact on members who have had to relocate to other countries. The coming year will definitely be one of further change and uncertainties and we will certainly need to chart new paths for our development going forwards.

We need to mention that our treasurer, David Elias, stepped down during the year. The trustees and kehilla are truly indebted to him for all his work over the years and we really relied on him even after he had left the area over 2 years ago! We will miss his diligence and attention to detail that ensured the smooth operation of our admin and finances and wish him and his family masliach in all that they do. We are grateful that during the year we also received help with various tasks from other members of the kehilla, this should help improve our operation by distributing responsibilities amongst more people.

We have always tried to be worthy of your support, so please do let us know how we can improve and keep Anshei Shalom important and relevant to you, E: info@ansheishalom.org.uk

There are many other ‘good’ causes and other charities further from us that have demanded charity from you over the year, now it’s time to focus on your ‘home’. We desperately need your support right now, so please either renew your memberships or join (if you haven’t already done so). Please find all our updated forms on our web site: http://www.anshei-shalom.com/membership.

For all the ways to donate to us, please see: https://www.anshei-shalom.com/bank-xfrs

On behalf of the whole Kehilah, we would like to thank you for your continued support and to wish you and your family only good health, S’machoth and Berachoth for 5782.

Tizku l’shaniim raboth.

With warmest regards

For and on behalf of Anshei Shalom:

Rabbi E Fhima
