250 Liberal Jews Flock to Birmingham for Day of Celebration

June 11th 2013

250 Liberal Jews flocked to Birmingham Progressive Synagogue for a day of celebration and learning on Sunday 9th June.

The day began with a rousing concert of both new and familiar liturgical music, presented by Cantor Gershon Silins, in which Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue's choir sand alongside Birmingham's cross-communal Kol Kinor choir. Participants then attended a choice of 30 sessions on subjects ranging from parenthood, community, study, art and music.

Highlights included a session on mixed faith families with Rabbi Aaron Goldstein, and a challah baking session with Rabbi Sandra Kviat.

Liberal Judaism provided free coaches from both north and south London to the event.

Rabbi Charley Baginsky who organised the Day of Celebration said: "This was an incredible and inspiring day for the future of Liberal Judaism, the huge number of congregations and rabbis involved testifies to the sheer reach of our message and to the massive groundswell of commitment to help our movement grow and grow."

Rabbi Danny Rich, chief executive, said: "Liberal Judaism is the non-London centric movement and we are proud to have brought such a varied and enriching programme to Birmingham."
