We meet four or five times a year at the Menorah Suite in central Bournemouth and the number of people attending is steadily increasing. Our average attendance is about 60, but there are times when we will have well over 100.

We aim to offer a varied programme; sometimes we have well known speakers from outside Bournemouth who are known nationally and internationally, but we are also fortunate to be able to draw upon local talent. We try to have a summer outing and last year we visited Yarnton Manor, the home of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish studies with which we have a special relationship.

Our year ends with a popular and well attended Chanucah/Advent party which gives an excellent opportunity for people to meet one another. We place great emphasis on dialogue and each meeting ends with tea/ coffee and biscuits and a chance to chat. People tend to stay at least half an hour after each meeting and our only “problem” is getting the last few out before we get reminders from those charged with locking up the building that the hour is late.
