The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

In your pre-Yom Kip­pur edi­tion, you ask: “Which coat?” ( JCLife, Septem­ber 25).

Per­haps the Jewish re­sponse should be: last year’s. Sew on any loose but­tons, take it to the dry cleaner and buy a fash­ion­able new belt if nec­es­sary. Then spend the £80+ that you save on a coat for a des­ti­tute Jew in the FSU (World Jewish Re­lief), or a Jewish woman who has fled her home and her abu­sive hus­band with only the clothes she stood up in (Jewish Women’s Aid), or a rough sleeper who is try­ing to make a new start and is find­ing the nights very chilly (Big Is­sue Foun­da­tion). I guar­an­tee that you will feel more ful­filled, and more con­nected to the rest of the hu­man race, than if you had bought the lat­est Max Mara or even Marks and Spencer.
