All Day for 2 Days

For 18 years, Rabbi Miriam Berger has led FRS with unwavering dedication, wisdom, and compassion. Her leadership and guidance have left an enduring impression on our community, and we look forward to marking the impact she has had on FRS. As we near the time when Miriam will step down as our Principal Rabbi, we are excited to share our plans to celebrate Miriam and her tenure at FRS. 

We have curated a series of unique events, each aimed at a different part of the community, and we hope you will join us at the event that fits you.  Our wonderful new building is a great home for us, but unfortunately doesn't have the capacity to hold all our members at once, so please choose the event that speaks to you most. NB: Places are limited so do book as soon as you're able to avoid disappointment.
Please note booking will close on June 10.


Please select which event you will be joining us at to celebrate Rabbi Miriam. To help you make your decision, please find a brief synopsis below:
