The Gloucestershire Liberal Jewish Community (GLJC) gathered most of its members together in January for a simultaneous Friday night dinner party.
Eighty people united in nine houses around Gloucestershire, enjoying home cooked food contributed by those taking part. Members were grouped together into convenient geographical locations to cut down the travelling time.
The event was the brainchild of Rabbi Anna Gerrard, in order to give a unique opportunity for members to enjoy each others’ company, get to know new people and to set up social opportunities to improve the cohesiveness of a small but growing Jewish community.
GLJC’s Louise Radford said: “The event was a tremendous success and it could become a regular annual dinner party. This is yet one more example of Rabbi Anna’s abilities to develop stronger community links and encourage membership. It shows that the GLJC is a vibrant and welcoming community of Jewish and potential Jewish members of all ages.”
