Hat Debate



Over the past few months Rabbi Ambalu and a small group of members have been working to develop an Adult Education/Engagement Plan with the aim of bringing people, at every level of involvement in Sha’arei Tsedek, into a closer relationship with the community.

The plan is focussed around three areas:

  • Belonging (chaverut),
  • Meaning (mashma’ut), and
  • Developing leadership skills (shutafut)

To kick start the Plan the Sha’arei Tsedek Community Hub has been set up to focus on ‘belonging’ (chaverut).

The aim of the Community Hub is to create a space for you to

  • socialise and get to know others in the community
  • share your skills and expertise to benefit others in the community

This small group is now looking for individuals to join with them to develop the wider aims and activities of the group.


Over the coming months we will be creating fabric triangles for the Stitching Institute for Collective Memory who are creating a collection of fabric hangings to keep the Holocaust alive.
