Chanukah lighting at Trafalgar Square

Rabbi Hackenbroch attended a number of events over the festival, including lighting the chanukiah at Trafalgar Square with the Mayor of London, a Chanukah reception at 10 Downing Street, and the Woodside Gan Chanukah party. He also hosted a visit by Peter Kyle MP to explain the challenges the Jewish community is currently facing

Over 150 members attended our very successful Communal Chanukah Event 

WPS youth held their own Chanukah party on Motzei Shabbat, organised by Rabbi Yitzi and our Youth Directors Jodi and Benjy. Doughnuts were on the menu - of course! - as well as other tasty food, and for a craft activity with a difference our teens then gave the top floor of the community centre a makeover with a difference - which included colourful hand prints! 

Woodside Gan held a lovely Chanukah party where Rabbi Hackenbroch told the children all about Chanukah and everyone enjoyed some delicious doughnuts. The children displayed beautiful chanukiot they had made to take home to their families along with homemade dreidel-shaped biscuits
