Our Tzedakah Tzevet joined five other schools (from Jewish and Catholic schools) to share their experiences of charity with children. They spoke in small groups about who in our community needs support and discussed different ways we can support them. They also worked with a Catholic friend to make cards for sick children at Great Ormond Street.
Mitzvah Day and Caritas Westminster (a similar charity for the Catholic community) will be joining together for Mitzvah Day 2019 to create Vinnie Packs, a pack with cold weather items for rough sleepers. We look forward to supporting this project later in the year.
It was clear that charity and giving means a lot to the children. They really enjoyed the day and gained lots from working with other children from their faith and a different faith with common goals and values.
