Annual election meeting
The Annual Election Meeting of The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) will take place at 10.30am on Tuesday 16 December 2014 at the Belsize Square Synagogue, 51 Belsize Square, London NW3 4HX.
The following serving trustees are being proposed for re-election: Eleanor Angel, Gaby Glassman and Frank Harding.
We were delighted that the celebrated author Judith Kerr was our guest of honour at a special event we organised with the London Jewish Cultural Centre on the afternoon of Sunday 29 June at the LJCC. Judith has become part of the fabric of British life and her books have enthralled and inspired children for many decades.
We were especially glad to welcome the families of our members – second and third (and possibly even fourth) generations – and were thrilled that Judith kindly agreed to read from her seminal book When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit to younger members of the audience. She also reflected on her own experiences and took questions from guests.
Annual visit to London
We were pleased to organise our annual 3 day trip to London in May 2014.
The trip included a visit to Kenwood House; dinner at the London Jewish Cultural Centre with guest speaker Ian Austin MP; a guided tour of the National Theatre and a matinee performance of their latest production “A Taste of Honey” by Shelagh Delaney; a relaxing evening and dinner at an award winning kosher Chinese restaurant; a visit to Camden Arts Centre and a boat trip down The Thames with lunch. Also, as always, the opportunity to meet friends old and new.
Members living in London can participate in the daily events.
