SouthendKehila Email Group
Now an independent group, open to all Jewish communities (Orthodox, Reform, Chassidic) and individuals in Southend and the surrounding area. It has a steering committee with representation from SWHC and the Southend and District Reform Synagogue. It also has links to Jewish Care and all the local charities.

Its primary aims are:

  • to provide a central source of information for events and classes across the Jewish community, which are open to everyone irrespective of a particular religious group or affiliation.
  • to provide a forum for members to ask for and give help (e.g. lift to London, something to buy or sell, recommendation for a plumber).  But no commercial advertising.
  • to provide news directly affecting our community especially in respect of security matters

It discourages political posts and is not a “chat room” for that and related matters.

All posts are reviewed for the admin team before release.
