The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BYJAYGRENBY

STAN­MORE AND Canons Park Syn­a­gogue’s Shab­bat UK pro­gramme has been recog­nised as one of the two best in Europe.

Con­gre­gants have been told the shul is be­ing hon­oured, along with the Ber­lin com­mu­nity, by the Con­fer­ence of Euro­pean Rab­bis’ Hulya or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Stan­more’s Shab­bat UK pro­gramme at­tracted an at­ten­dance of al­most 1,200 to 11 events over five days, in­clud­ing speak­ers at mem­bers’ homes, a Fri­day night ser­vice fol­lowed by a whisky and sushi kid­dush, a com­mu­nity meal for 350 and post-Shab­bat fire­works.

Mer­rick Wol­man, Stan­more’s chair­man, is “in­cred­i­bly proud of what our Shab­bat UK com­mit­tee achieved. Stan­more is known as one of the big­gest com­mu­ni­ties in Europe. This award proves we are also one of the best.”
