Well at home after £2m pro­ject

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

HOUS­ING AS­SO­CI­A­TION jLiv­ing marked the com­ple­tion of a £2 mil­lion build­ing pro­ject in Gold­ers Green with a break­fast re­cep­tion on Tues­day at­tended by Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis.

The devel­op­ment sees the ad­di­tion of 11 state-of-the-art shel­tered flats within jLiv­ing’s Wolf­son Court prop­erty.

“High qual­ity shel­tered hous­ing in Gold­ers Green is very much in de­mand,” noted Bradley Re­back, jLiv­ing’s chair­man. “Now in our 51st year, jLiv­ing con­tin­ues to ex­plore pos­si­bil­i­ties to develop fur­ther new homes and upgrade our ex­ist­ing 15 de­vel­op­ments to best serve the com­mu­nity.”

Be­fore af­fix­ing a mezuzah to the door of the new com­mu­nal lounge, Rabbi Mirvis said: “This is chesed of the high­est level. Ac­cord­ing to Mai­monides, the best form of tzedakah is al­low­ing peo­ple to look after them­selves.”
