SHAB­BAT LES­SON

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Last Fri­day morn­ing, Oc­to­ber 23, my class and I gath­ered in a great big white tent at Brent Cross with hun­dreds of other Jewish pri­mary school chil­dren. It was amaz­ing to be singing and danc­ing to­gether freely, first to the Ja­maican drum­ming and then to the very many Jewish songs.

The ter­ri­ble things that have been go­ing on in Is­rael and around the world have been very wor­ry­ing. But for those few hours in the tent they did not en­ter my mind at all. It felt re­ally good to cel­e­brate with all those chil­dren.

I’m so grate­ful to Chief Rabbi Mirvis for in­tro­duc­ing Shab­bat UK to all of us. Alex Wo­jakovski, aged 10 Naima JPS
