Israel Fires Appeal - Send Your Help With TRIBEDecember 07, 2016
We have all been horrified to see fires raging throughout Israel leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Hundreds of thousands of people have had their lives thrown into turmoil.
The Tribe Israel team have arranged to distribute a range of items needed by those affected by the fires; everything from mattresses to mezuzahs, and toys and games for children.
We are approaching Chanukah, a time of light and happiness – especially for young people. We really need your help to reach out to those for whom Chanukah this year will be a time of real difficulty.
Tribe have set up a JustGiving page where people can donate whatever they can to help. We are suggesting a donation of £18 which represents Chai (life), as people look to rebuild their lives, but any donation would be gratefully received.
TO DONATE, CLICK HERE
If you prefer you can donate £5 or £10 by texting TRIB15 £5 or TRIB15 £10 to 70070.
Every single pound received will be used to provide items that will make a real difference. Please help.

United Synagogue Willesden Cemetery Heritage ProjectDecember 07, 2016
Help shape the future of Willesden Cemetery
The US is developing plans for Willesden Cemetery to open it to visitors as a heritage attraction, thanks to a Heritage Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The project has reached the stage where we want to hear from you. We’d like to understand how US members and others value the Victorian cemetery and how they view our evolving proposals to connect more people and a wider range of people, with its heritage. Perhaps you have relatives buried there, or you’ve been on a walking tour, or would simply like to find out more? Your opinions will help shape Willesden’s future as a burial ground and a place to visit. Take part in our opinion survey by clicking HERE – it only takes a few minutes. For more information please click HERE.
The book of Genesis is replete with drama, and this week’s parsha, parshat Vayetzei, is no exception. For me, one of the most moving and meaningful moments is in a very small nuance that is easy to miss.
Jacob the fugitive leaves his parents’ home, fleeing to his uncle Laban’s house. On his way he lies down and experiences the famous dream with the angels ascending and descending a ladder. This is not just an esoteric vision.
