Agenda

(These are adult sessions. Separate children's sessions will be run at the same time)


SESSION 1
2:30-3:30PM


OPTION 1: Faith, Meaning, Beginning Again with Ben Fromson

It is hard to engage with the ritual of Rosh Hashanah without often bumping into God. Yet, talk of God can make many of us walk in the other direction. Join this session reflecting on some of the work of Rabbi Louis Jacobs about the emotional nature of faith, and provoke the possibility that the quest for God is worth returning to. 

Ben Fromson studied at Yeshivat Ma’ale Gilboa, Pardes, Hadar and the Aquinas Institute of Ireland. He studied philosophy at Leeds University and often presents at Limmud. Ben works at Jami, a Jewish mental health charity.


OPTION 2: Tearing at the heart strings, breaking from the old and into the new with Rabbi Oliver Spike Joseph and Rachel Sklan

What a year it has been, wherever you have been, its been big with great highs and lows. In this year our mental health and our resilience has been tested like never before. We will sit with some of the themes of the year gone past, examine and process finding strength processing together.

Rachel Sklan is a founder member of the Havurah and Deputy Chief Executive of Masorti Judaism, she is a teams and communications trainer and a trainee group analyst. 

Rabbi Oliver Spike Joseph is the founding rabbi of the Havurah and currently also works for New North London Synagogue. Oliver studied towards his rabbinic ordination in Israel and the United States and grew up through Noam our Masorti youth movement. 


SESSION 2
3:45- 4:45PM


OPTION 1: A year of reflection, a year of strength with Naomi Magnus

There is no such thing as a perfect year, each year gone past has lessons learnt, opportunities missed, great strength and achievement. How do we find the language to name and share some of our highs and our lows. Is there strength to be found in sharing as a group and finding more honesty as a community as we begin this New Year afresh?

Naomi Magnus is a founding member of the Havurah and an experienced psychotherapist. She has worked in a variety of settings including the NHS and a women's domestic abuse counselling service. Naomi has worked with non-profit community and human rights organisations. She has run her own private psychotherapy practice in London for the last 8 years.


OPTION 2: Birthday and Shofar – celebrating and listening to the call of the year ahead and the year gone by with Rabbi Oliver Spike Joseph

The shofar and new beginnings are two key aspects of the days of Rosh Hashanah, come with me as we investigate what it means to evaluate the purpose of our lives in true relationship and harmony with the natural world. The shofar serves to awake us to reflect on the year that has been and who we really are, how do these core themes of awakening and creation sit alongside one another?

Rabbi Oliver Spike Joseph is the founding rabbi of the Havurah and currently also works for New North London Synagogue. Oliver studied towards his rabbinic ordination in Israel and the United States and grew up through Noam our Masorti youth movement.
