To celebrate Mitzvah Day, Westminster Synagogue and Westminster Young Professionals took on a variety of projects:
On Saturday 18th November, members of the community donated tins and toiletries for a variety of homeless shelters and charities in London. Children of our Or Shabbat classes made cards for The Separated Child Foundation and - as it was also Interfaith Week - members of different faiths came together for an Oneg Shabbat with Reverand Pippa Turner.
On Sunday 19th November, members of WYP headed to Sainsbury's on Cromwell Road to encourage shoppers to donate items for shelters and charities in London. Everything gathered was then added to that raised from other communities participating in "MD West-Central" including Holland Park, Western Marble Arch, Central and New West End Synagogues.
Below are just a few photos gathered from the weekend.
