- to approach you with a request to please advise on how to get all Kiruv organisations working in the UK to attend with at least onerepresentative:

SeeD, PaL or Aish and any other.

PaL:We hope for someone from PaL - a Rabbi or activist - will contribute his time to explain the concept to the attendees and perhaps show one of our volunteers how to run a registration drive, this would beenough.

If the PaL representative can stay for the duration of thewhole event, this would be fantastic. - awaiting their confirmation.I will fill you in once I have the details of an exact location and so on.

Calculu Business and Training Centre Launches Summer Term English Courses

Overwhelming response forces new classes to be opened immediately, places are being snapped up

By Menasche Scharf

The first class in the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) has taken off with a bang!

Young Kollel Men sat in a class together with budding entrepreneurs - eager to get their English brushed up. Mr Lawrence, rector of Courses at the London Essex College delivered the debut lesson to students from Israel, Belgium and London, which turned out to be a great success.

Mr Menasche Scharf - Founding Director of Calculu Business and Training Centre, commented on the positive approach taken by all involved: Lester Harris, Community Development Programme Co-ordinator at the Jewish Care - Brenner Community Center, and his colleagues were extremely helpful in bringing this project to fruition

We look forward to increasing the number of classes and to broaden the range and scope of courses to accommodate the growing public interest.

Subjects that are requested by would-be students range from basic Typing and Bookkeeping to Advanced Graphic Design and CAD (=Computer Aided Design) for Architecture and Manufacturing.

So far, over one hundred applications have been accepted, which is clear indication of the crying need for an organisation such as Calculu Business and Training Centre.

Pricing has been kept at an extremely affordable level, to enable applicants on low-income to attend.

Private lessons for in-house delivery for commercial outfits are now planned, to minimise on loss of working time. This is in direct response from many interested parties.
