PLANS FOR St Al­bans Ma­sorti’s first per­ma­nent home were shown to mem­bers at a tea party held in the shell of its newly-ac­quired premises. Build­ing work is set to start in Oc­to­ber with an­tic­i­pated com­ple­tion next spring. Shul co-chair Paul Hoff­brand said: “Af­ter 21 years of hav­ing to hire dif­fer­ent venues for our ser­vices, we will now be able to of­fer our mem­bers a fixed lo­ca­tion where we can wor­ship and cel­e­brate while strength­en­ing our ties within the lo­cal com­mu­nity.”


THE CHIEF Rabbi ad­dressed the launch of the lat­est edi­tion of the Bnei Akiva ed­u­ca­tional jour­nal, To­rat Habayit, which has been ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of for­mer move­ment leader and com­mu­nal per­son­al­ity Marc Wein­berg. Lord Sacks said Mr Wein­berg had founded the jour­nal and had made a ma­jor im­pact on com­mu­nal life.


START­ING FROM Ju­bilee Gar­dens, 50 Jewish As­so­ci­a­tion for Men­tal Ill­ness sup­port­ers took part in a walk cov­er­ing the cap­i­tal’s fa­mous bridges. It raised more than £2,000.
