Campus sinks money into kosher kitchen
BABY ILLNESSES, emergency protocols and CPR were among topics covered during a pediatric first-aid course at Mill Hill Synagogue organised by the United Synagogue’s Project Chesed and led by Daniel Morris from Learn2Rescue.
Chesed liaison officer Orah Barnett reported: “We had expected this topic to appeal to young couples but we were delighted to see a range of people including first-time grandparents.”
Project Chesed will be offering additional sessions to communities throughout the US including one at Bushey in May.
A KOSHER kitchen provided for students by Salford University incorporates two sinks, milk and meat microwaves and a fridge freezer.
Part of the university’s new multifaith centre, the kitchen is the result of consultations between Salford officials and regional chaplain Rabbi Ephraim Guttentag.
The university paid for the main appliances and for the kitchen to be fitted out.
Chaplaincy is meeting the cost of smaller items and ongoing supplies.
Expressing gratitude to the university, Rabbi Guttentag said it demonstrated “their inclusivity and how accommodating they are to Jewish students on campus.
“The kitchen is a great facility for students who want to keep kosher and be able to have their own snacks and drinks.”
Raffy Graff, the Salford JSoc president, commended the rabbi “for his efforts to enhance Jewish student life”.
