Central London communities pull off an amazing Mitzvah Day

In an unprecedented joint effort by Central London Communities, under the direction and coordination of Toni Nagel of New West End Synagogue and representatives from each community, we took on several projects in honour of Mitzvah Day.

The largest scale operation was the supermarket food/toiletries collection which involved 6 supermarkets across Marylebone, Bayswater and Kensington.  As seen from the photographs, we managed to collect an enormous amount from hundreds of generous shoppers.

The communities involved were:

Central Synagogue
Holland Park Synagogue
Lansdowne College
New West End Synagogue
Western Marble Arch Synagogue
Westminster Synagogue

Charities supported:

Chapter 1
Local Foodbanks
St Mungo’s
Magic Breakfast
Thames Reach
The Refugee Council
The Separated Child Foundation

Other projects included: Visiting a Care Home in Ladbroke Grove, Children writing letters for the The Separated Child Foundation to welcome unaccompanied minors to the UK and cooking dinner for a local St Mungo’s residence.
