How we Celebrated 25 years

2011 marked Kol Chai’s 25th anniversary and there were a number of celebratory aspects to the services.

There was a very special Celebration Shabbat with VIP guests followed by a lavish, catered kiddush/lunch. A few weeks later, in November, there was a Grand Silver Anniversary Party with dancing to a live band and wonderful food. 

Most Social and Cultural groups within Kol Chai organised something special in addition to their regular activities. Here are some of the events:

Kol Chai Choir:

held a Singing Workshop in September, which was open to everyone, regardless of voice or ability to read music, with the renowned and aptly named singer and teacher, Judith Silver.

Music Society:

held a Desert Island Discs event at the Synagogue in September, starring Rabbi Michael Hilton and marking his 10th anniversary with Kol Chai.

Film Club:

held a Special Film Night in September and the audience enjoyed a glass of wine with their usual lavish refreshments after the screening of Wondrous Oblivion.

Adult Education:

invited Keith Kahn-Harris in September to talk about the Changing Face of Anglo Jewry.  He looked back at British Jewry over the past 25 years and forward to the next 25 years.

Tea and Talk:

members brought jewellery to either sell or get valued by an expert at one of their monthly sessions in the autumn.

Table Tennis:
the Kol Chai club held on Tuesday 6th December a knock-out competition, which has nowbecome an annual event.

Bridge Club:
our popular club held at their monthly meeting in November an evening of Bridge with a few twists.
