New York education in Finchley synagogue

October 27, 2011

Four students from New York’s Yeshiva University presented 10 learning events for women at Finchley Synagogue over the Simchat Torah weekend.

Chavi Becker, Kira Joel, Shlomit Cohen and Derora Tropp also led the women’s dancing in synagogue during the festival.

The well-attended activities ranged from interactive Torah study to learning-based afternoon teas in members’ homes.

Ms Becker, a programme manager at Yeshiva University’s Centre for the Jewish Future, felt “privileged to have had the opportunity to be exposed to the wonderful Kinloss community. The passion of the congregants was seen through the wonderful turnout.”
