Alei Tzion welcomed in the Israeli community for Friday night dinner to mark Shabbat UK. 25 Israelis joined members of the community for a warm and friendly dinner at the synagogue.  

Conversation flowed throughout the night in a mixture of English and Hebrew with all those present getting to know each other.   

Alei Tzion is a 250-member religious Zionist United Synagogue community in Hendon with a strong connection to Israel. Many of its members make aliyah each year. 

Michelle Bauernfreund, Chair of Alei Tzion, said: "We were excited to use Shabbat UK as an opportunity to reach out to a part of the wider community who may not normally feel affiliated to central community events."
