Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis visits our Shul. What an historic day when the first Chief Rabbi in 50 years visited our Shul on Sunday 29th January for the official induction of Rabbi Yanky Prijs. Over 150 people attended including Dayan Berger from the Beth Din and many Rabbonim and executives from Shuls both in and around Manchester. They were expertly entertained by our quartet of Chazonim, Martin Radnan, Simon Caplan, Alan Goodman and Menachem Leiberman. All of the speakers spoke superbly and the perfect afternoon was finished with a delicious buffet reception where the Chief Rabbi mingled with the community.
Eruv Extension Coming Soon. Please note that we are not currently in the Eruv. But, we are very excited to announce that planning permission has been granted for the Meade Hill extension of the Manchester Eruv. We are hoping that it will be in place before Pesach, but this is not set in stone yet (and neither are the poles). We will issue a further update as soon as we hear more. –Update– As of January 2017 the poles are on order and the Eruv team are waiting for them to be delivered. –Update– As of April 2017 the Eruv committee are hoping that the Eruv will be in place during the summer.
