Northwood members soak their rabbi for a great cause

4 July 2018

Members of Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue (NPLS) raised money to help local homeless and vulnerable people at a special cheder fun day.

Activities included games, arts and crafts and, most popular of all, a chance to throw sponges at Rabbi Aaron Goldstein.

Aaron said: “The one consistent complaint of NPLS parents is that they wish cheder in their day had been as meaningful and joyful as it is now. I think a part of that is the opportunity once a year to throw sponges at one of the rabbis!

“The whole day was lots of fun and it had a beautiful ending – a final song session and blessing under a tallitot ‘chuppah’ with children, teachers and parents all taking part.”

Money raised from the day will go to New Hope, a charity which serves individuals who are homeless or vulnerably-housed through the provision of accommodation and opportunities to transform lives.
