Author and lecturer Rabbi Hanoch Teller was the keynote speaker and other contributors included Rabbi Anthony Knopf, Rosalind Preston, Doreen Samuels, Johnny Solomon, scribe Bernard Benarroch and music therapist Aviva Braunold. .

On behalf of the four communities, Rabbi Moshe Freedman of Northwood Synagogue, said: "We were excited to be able to offer a thought-provoking programme with speakers of such high calibre. The varied topics meant there really was something for everyone."
