Saturday Night Live!
The 47 Club will shortly be announcing exciting plans about the Saturday Night Live event scheduled for 29 November . The plan is to run from 5.30 pm until 7.00 pm with Havdalah, supper and a chance to chill (a modern term meaning to “hang out” rather than getting cold) with your friends in a warm, convivial atmosphere. Naomi will be sending invitations out very soon.
Please let either the Shul office, Rabbi Wilson or Gordon Miller know of any member(s) who is/are unwell. We will arrange home or hospital visits and shopping if necessary.
