Minister’s muddy goodshow
RABBI AARON Goldstein led Northwood and Pinner Liberal Synagogue members on a Mitzvah Day project for Tu Bishvat, supporting the Friends of Croxley Common Moor in a clearing and tidying operation.
A muddied Rabbi Goldstein said: “It is sometimes difficult to make the connection to first buds on the almond trees in the land of Israel, as you are meant to on Tu Bishvat, with such inclement weather.
“But making a difference to our local environment does seem a fitting way to acknowledge that connection and also reinforce the Mitzvah Day message that we can be doing good 365 days of the year.”
Other communities in London, Essex, Oxford and Manchester also took part in Mitzvah Day projects for Tu Bishvat.
