Good Deeds and a lot of fun was generated on Mitzvah Day by children from Kol Chai & Mosaic joint religion school, HaMakom.
With a host of activities to choose from in Kol Chai’s busy hall, children teachers & helpers wrapped toiletry packs for the homeless, made get well cards for people suffering from disabilities and prepared cupcakes & fruit-kebabs to deliver to residents of The Haven, a local Care Home in Hatch End.
The entire ‘Mitzvah Team’ then trekked to The Haven, entertaining the residents with a delightful concert before offering their home-made cakes.
The sustainability aspect of Mitzvah Day was not ignored either. Both communities collected felt tip pens and plastic bottle tops for recycling. Money raised from the process goes to charities helping children in hospices and poor families in the Philippines.

Yet another group of enthusiastic ‘green’ Kol Chai members joined Friends of Croxley Common Moor for the morning – tackling a variety of tasks to maintain Croxley Common as an open grassland and site of Special Scientific Interest. Over 30 people pitched in to prune trees and help clear the site, adding logs and branches to a bonfire and collecting litter.
