When we created ELELS we wanted to build on and combine the best features of Bimah and Ha-etz - the community magazines of the old Woodford Liberal and Bet Tikvah synagogues. The new editorial team decided to call the magazine HaGesher (The Bridge) and, with the new name, came a new look, one that reflects our new vibrant community.
Issue 1 - March/April a lighter issue of HaGesher covering Mitzvah Day activities, Chanukah celebrations, forthcoming events and news from round our community.
Issue 4 (December) - renewal & rededication; tributes to Sidney Sanders; transitioning from Interim to Elected Council; the legacy & history of Perrymans Farm Road; HHD & other recent festivals; the recent communal visit to Budapest; & more
Issue 3 (September) - tributes to Joe Swinburne, Jenny Sclaire & Pearl Miller; welcoming Student Rabbi Daniela Touati; and more
Issue 2 (July) - terrorism & extremism; the losing side of elections; the Collins & Forbes wedding; reflections on the World Union for Progressive Judaism; and other news
Issue 1 (March) - who's who on Interim Council; Purim & Pesach; denial & fake news; and other news from around our community.
