Min­is­ter’s muddy good­show

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
