You are invited to a live screening of 
The Women's Balcony

Join singer Marc Joseph for an evening of musical theatre with a Jewish twist as you’ve never heard it before. Through songs from Annie and the Sound of Music and popular music including ABBA, Marc will explore his journey from the showbiz world of musical theatre to becoming a Chazan at the New West End Synagogue

Date : Thursday 16 July

Time: 8.00pm

The building site of a new synagogue located at the heart of a close-knit community in Jerusalem turns into a battleground between husbands and wives, when a new charismatic rabbi decrees that it will not include a women’s balcony – thus barring them altogether from religious services. The Women’s Balconyis a joyous, riotous and thought provoking portrayal of a community striving for equality, which has deservedly become a global hit.

'Whistle-stop Tour through Tanach - Trei Asar'


Have you ever wondered what Trei Asar (Twelve Minor Prophets) is all about? Who are these Prophets that feature so often in the Haftorah for Shabbat and festivals? 

Join us on a whistle-stop tour through these significant books of Tanach, spanning from the First Temple period to its destruction and the eventual rebuilding of the Second Temple. We will study one book every session, understanding their historical context and main message to both their generation, and to us today.  

Want to appreciate the deeper meaning of the weekly Torah portion? Looking for a nice Dvar Torah to share at the Shabbat table? Join us as we delve into the weekly Parasha with a variety of guest speakers. This week we are joined by Rabbi Ben Kurzer.

This event will be available on United Synagogue's YouTube channel and Facebook page on Tuesday's at 1pm.
