Meals for Mums

We have had a fantastic response to UHC’s new initiative, “Meals for Mums”, providing meals cooked by volunteers in the UHC kitchen to families who have just had a new baby.

The UHC Meals for Mums committee will be holding another cooking session on the afternoon of Monday 21st August.  If you would like to come along and help with the cooking, chopping or packing or you would like to make a donation to the cost of the food please get in touch with the shul office.  Please also contact the office if you want to sponsor an extra freezer for the UHC kitchen for the Meals for Mums food.  All donations and offers of help would be gratefully received.

Whisky Tasting Evening

The UHC is once again delighted to be hosting an evening of whisky tasting and refreshments – a Chanukah Whisky Tasting Extravaganza – on Thursday 14th December 2017 straight after Maariv, at a cost of £30 per head.

As before, the bottles will be a variety of single cask exclusive malts (none of which can be purchased on the high street) and most if not all will have never been sampled before!

Cheese, crackers and fruit, along with Latkes to celebrate Chanukah will be served, and there will be an auction and a raffle. Plus you will get to take home your very own crystal tasting glass and maybe a bottle too!

To book your place, or if anyone wishes to sponsor a table or bottle (see below) at the event please do so via Eventbrite https://chanukah-whisky-tasting.eventbrite.co.uk.

£100 to sponsor a table (not including any tickets)

£150 bottle sponsor (up to 5 of these)

£500 main event sponsor

Sponsoring a Seudah       

If anyone would like to sponsor a Seudah on a Shabbat afternoon, please contact the office to check availability.  The cost is £25.00.  The following dates are available to sponsor for the remainder of this year – 23rd September, 7th & 14th October.


CST has a new 24 hour emergency phone number for reporting antisemitic incidents, suspicious behaviour and informing them of security incidents. The new number is: 0800 032 3263.

Hospital and Pastoral Visits

We would like to ask all members and their families to notify the Shul office or Chazan Alby direct if any member is ill, in hospital or would like a pastoral visit.  Unfortunately, all too often we don’t know someone is in need or would like a visit until it is too late and we want to ensure that NO-ONE is missed.
