Mitzvah Day: Show of faith in Elstree

By Jan Grenby, November 19, 2009

Three Hertsmere shuls were represented on Mitzvah Day at A Celebration of Faiths, the launch of the borough’s inaugural Interfaith Week.

The Liberal Synagogue Elstree’s Shul of Rock kicked-off the event at Borehamwood’s Village Hall before a crowd of several hundred including Hertsmere Mayor Councillor Rosemary Gilligan. The performance of Shul of Rock — a band of teenage musicians supplemented by minister Rabbi Pete Tobias on guitar — was markedly different to the church choirs that followed them.

Council approves Borehamwood eruv

By Robyn Rosen, November 12, 2009

An eruv will be built in Borehamwood in a “matter of weeks” after Hertsmere’s planning committee unanimously backed an amended application.

Although the original application was approved in 2007, changes have been made to 21 of the 34 pole locations and one new pole site has been added.

“This has been needed in the community for a long time,” said Ebor Eruv Campaign trustee David Freedman. “I’m very pleased we’ve managed to secure what we wanted.”


Yavneh deputy head leaves

By Leon Symons, November 5, 2009

The deputy head of Yavneh College in Borehamwood is leaving to head a new academy school in Essex.

Matthew Slater joined Yavneh in 2005, a year before it opened, and has been instrumental in overseeing most of the building work that has transformed it into a state-of-the-art school.

He is leaving at the end of this term to become principal of Drapers’ Academy in Harold Hill, a project similar to Yavneh in that the new school will be developed from existing buildings.


Rabbi wins Tory seat

By Jay Grenby, October 29, 2009

Elstree and Borehamwood emeritus minister Rabbi Alan Plancey has an extended congregation after winning the Borehamwood North seat for the Tories in a Hertfordshire County Council by-election.

In his new role he will draw on the people skills honed during more than 30 years as a community rabbi.

“I don’t want them to go to waste and now I am going to employ them for the benefit of the whole community,” he said.


Yavneh pupils to make their mark at Eton

By Leon Symons, October 29, 2009

A group of pupils from Yavneh College in Borehamwood will be visiting Eton College next week for the first of what the school hopes will be regular exchanges.

The group, mainly from year-10 because the youngest Eton pupils are 13, will be taking part in a faith forum at the famous public school. They will be telling pupils from other faith schools about Judaism, what it means to be Jewish and what life is like in a Jewish school.


Shul vandals are the children of members

By Jay Grenby, October 15, 2009

Congregants’ children vandalised Borehamwood and Elstree Synagogue’s play area over Yom Kippur, the shul has claimed. Yet an email appeal for the culprits to come forward and contribute to the cost of repairs has to date met with a zero response.
