On Sunday 13 December we are delighted to welcome back Rabbi Yaacov Finn who will deliver a talk on
"Moses’ missing years"
What happened when Moses ran away from Egypt?
Did he go straight to Midyan and bump into the daughters of Jethro at the well or did he go on an adventure taking him on a journey of leadership and discovery?
Join us as we enter the world of Midrash to discover the hidden life of the man who would lead the Jewish people out of Egypt.
Rabbi Yaacov Finn is the Programme and Communications Manager at the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS), the Rabbi of the 'Limmud Minyan’ in Borehamwood United Synagogue and consults for United Synagogue's "Living and Learning" programme. Previous to this, he was the Interim Minister of Shenley United Synagogue. He holds an MSc in health psychology from UCL/Kings' College London and has taught across the country.
The evening will begin with a delicious buffet dinner.

For any of us who have been in a situation where we have been wronged by someone else and are unsure as to the way forward, Jacob’s actions this week are a beacon of light. Despite Esau vowing to kill him, and having subsequently lived as a refugee to never see his mother again, Jacob goes out of his way to offer the olive branch. His attempt at reconciliation is remarkable, and the way in which he outs his ego to the side commendable.
