Woodford Forest Mitzvah Day 2016
Date Uploaded: 
Thursday 1st December 2016

A coffee morning was held at the JBD building Milne Court on Mitzvah Day. Members of  the nearby Woodford Forest Shul organised the event for tenants. Clare Shaw entertained everyone on the piano by playing music from shows and also some Yiddish songs. The event brought 'sunshine to seniors' and a good time was had by all!

An afternoon tea was also organised by Woodford Forest US volunteers for tenants at JBD building Hilary Dennis Court. Rabbi Wollenberg explained that the Mitzvah Day activities at both Hilary Dennis and Milne Court were building on some other events that had been organised recently, and that we are looking to add more activities between now and next Mitzvah Day!  


Sisters and family from Woodford Forest and Bushey synagogues held a tea party for their mum Miriam, along with her friends, at Deborah Rayne House in Hendon. One of the residents played a few tunes on the piano as well as helping in the kitchen! 

Woodford Forest volunteer, Julian Rainsbury, spent time repairing Kaddish booklets to make them as good as new!
