Juliet has been a member of BES for 18 years and the Shul has played a huge part in her life and that of her husband Simon and children, Joel, Tammy and their much-missed daughter Shani.
Together with Simon, Juliet was part of the original Southside Committee, developing services at Yavneh. She initiated the children's service provision, recruiting volunteers and running the rotas as well as taking many Reception services. Her claim to fame is that she started the BES@Yavneh Facebook page!
Juliet enjoys being part of the welcoming team, and is looking forward to resuming her favourite position at the back of the Shul wearing her homemade lanyard very soon. She is also involved with CRP scanning, Kiddush rota and for the past two years has coordinated volunteers for the JLEX exhibition which brings hundreds of local children into Shul and teaches them about Judaism, she is proud to be part of this important project.
This year Juliet was happy to have the opportunity to work in the BES Office, helping to organise and publicise events. She really enjoyed working alongside the professional team and the HOs and particularly enjoyed the design challenges set by Simon Mitchell and Rabbi Chapper, like the chocolate-themed Simchat Torah and the Fancy Hat Competition for Purim! When the office closed due to Covid19, she helped with the BES Stay Connected programme.
She is honoured to be asked to be Eishet Chayil and is looking forward to lockdown lifting so we can all be together at Shul again.
