Next Shabbat, March 1st is Legacy Shabbat 2014. It is being supported and promoted by Jewish Legacy together with the United Synagogue to raise awareness of the importance of legacy giving. The opportunity to leave a lasting mark on the future generations of the Jewish community is something very special. If you haven’t considered leaving a legacy, do give it some thought. If you’d like to know more about leaving a legacy to support a local community or United Synagogue project, email us at

We would like to wish Rabbi Chaim Kanterovitz and his family a hearty Mazel Tov on his induction service last Shabbat in Borehamwood. Mazel Tov as well to Rabbi Daniel Epstein and his family on being appointed as the new rabbi of Cockfosters and N Southgate Synagogue.

Shabbat Shalom,

The You & US Team
