Join us for a special Havdalah Service with Rabbi Sharon Shalom, an Ethiopian Rabbi from Israel

Internationally renowned guest speaker Rabbi Sharon Shalom was born in Ethiopia in 1973. Rabbi Sharon was part of the daring Operation Moses mission that brought 8,000 Ethiopian Jews from Sudan via Brussels to Israel in 1984. No sooner had Sharon arrived at an Afula orphanage, he was notified that his family had died in Sudan and spent two years grieving for them. Unknown to him, they had in fact miraculously survived, though he would not hear this extraordinary news for several years. Rabbi Sharon’s story is mesmerising and heart-warming and we are honoured to have him join us for our Shabbat UK Programme. All are welcome to stay on for a lively communal Havdalah after the talk.
