The Leeds Mitzvah Chain completed another leg of its journey across the community.
Geoff Caplan, chairman of Donisthorpe Hall, handed over the mitzvah menorah baton on behalf of the care home to Rabbi Jason Kleiman of Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue.
The mitzvah project, organised by Leeds emissary Gilad Amit, aims at motivating communal organisations to perform good deeds for each other.
Donisthorpe received the baton last month from Sinai Synagogue's Roger Lawford at a musical entertainment given at the home by Sinai members.
