Yeshrun’s N’Shei Chayil 5755

As we approach Shavuot, when Yeshurun recognises the achievements of our Ladies, I am delighted to remind the community that this year we are honouring Gail Blain (pictured left below) and Patricia Shaer (pictured right below) as our N’Shei Chayil. Gail has served for what we think is a record 19 years as treasurer of the Ladies Guild and Patricia joined the Ladies Guild almost 40 years ago.



Both have given much time and service to our community ably assisted by their respective husbands, Barry and Brian, and they are truly deserving of being honoured in this way.

After Mussaf on the second day of Yom Tov, we will enjoy a Kiddish in their honour and presentations will be made to Gail and Patricia who will then address the community in the Leff Hall.

I wish Gail and Patricia, together with their respective families “mazal tov” and hope that they have a wonderful Yom Tov and congratulate them on being our N’Shei Chayil for 5755.

New Yeshurun Board of Management for 2015/16 – EGM cancelled.

The 10.00am deadline for all those nominated to stand for the Yeshurun Board of Management passed a little while back and I am therefore able to advise that in addition to the Honorary Officers, we had 7 nominations for the 7 male Board member positions and 5  nominations for the 5 female positions. As such I can confirm that there is no requirement for voting to take place and the Extraordinary General Meeting which was scheduled to take place on 19 May 2015 is therefore cancelled.
