    title: Are Human Rights Good for Jews?

    contact: BHH Office
    venue: BHH Synagogue
    description: The BHH Cultural Committee invite you to an evening of with Shauna Leven, the Director of “Rene Cassin” Are Human Rights Good for Jews? In the 1940s, 50s and 60s Jewish people and organisations played a disproportionately large role in creating the human rights laws that the world desperately needed after the Holocaust. However, since then, some believe that the Jewish community has turned away from human rights, and in some circles terms like ‘human rights’ and ‘United Nations’ have become dirty words. This talk will look at why this has happened and examine whether we still need human rights as a community, mentioning some Jewish human rights heroes along the way. £5.00 - the evening includes refreshments after the event Please let the BHH office know of your intention to attend for catering purposes

This is NOT your average service. No sermon! (Sorry Rabbi…) Why? Ever wanted to go to Shul but don’t really know what’s going on? No one told us what was happening so how can we be expected to know, right?! This is a unique opportunity find out more about what millions of us Jews do on a Saturday morning, and why! Pop in for an hour, pop in for Kiddush (honestly, you’re very welcome just to come for the fress!) – or come for the whole service if you’re feeling brave.. Try something different, you might just enjoy it… Where and When? Saturday 31st May We are in the lower hall in BHH Street Lane Gardens, downstairs on the left as you come in. Get there for 10am for explanation and lively discussion. Our service takes place the last Shabbat of every month – so get them in your diary! This is for both men and women, all are welcome.
