First trip for Wolfson

November 17, 2011

The first trip to Poland for parents whose children attend Wolfson Hillel Primary was described by participants as educational and emotional.

The 18 parents on the two-day programme were led by Rabbi David Mason from Muswell Hill Synagogue with help from the United Synagogue's community services division.

The group's visit included a guided tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Wolfson Hillel parent Nicky Marks, who initiated the trip, said: "The trip was hugely educational, unbelievably emotional and highly inspirational."

The US has previously run Poland trips for its communities and now plans further visits for school parents.
