Mill Hill 'Mensch' reaches out to secular Jews

February 11, 2010

A Mill Hill-based charity is setting out to help those with “little or no Jewish connection” observe key events in a religious way.

Co-ordinator Steven Giffin said Mensch aimed to find solutions clients could feel comfortable with.

Aston Harvey, 39, from Harrow Weald, was helped by Mensch after his mother died. “We are not a religious family but I wanted something traditional. Mensch organised everything for me — arranging the burial and sending a rabbi to take the service.”
