Mega Events

About once a month, EMS hosts a multigenerational activity, for example: A Challa Bake for Shabbat UK in October, our annual Chanukah Party in December, Hamantashen for Hunger (cookie baking) for Purim in March and a Chametz Hunt (treasure search) for Passover.

Check out our activities from the last years:

In 2017, EMS received media coverage when we hosted a DiversiTea Party for Mitzvah Day in November during which a mixed faith group of youth hosted senior members from our very own synagogue along with local Church and Mosque goers to make it a true celebration of age and religion.
