Kingston Synagogue minister Rabbi David Mason led a 20-strong group of younger members and their families on a two-day trip to Poland.
The itinerary included a tour of the Auschwitz/Birkenau death camp site, where the rabbi conducted a memorial service for victims of the Holocaust.
Rabbi Mason — whose wife is Polish-born — said the positive feedback from participants “made me realise the importance of such visits in contributing to the deepening of Jewish identity and the ability to tell the Jewish story”.
