Mitzvah Day shopping

November 11, 2008

In association with GIFT, a number of organisations, such as Bnei Akiva, will be setting up stands in local supermarkets and shopping malls to ask shoppers to add just one extra item to their shopping lists, as a donation to homeless and refugee charities across Britain. Lady Sacks, for example, will be helping to staff a stand at Adafina Kosher deli in St John's Wood, while the Liberal Jewish Synagogue will be setting out their stall at the O2 centre on the Finchley Road. The Manchester Reform community will be doing their Mitzvah day shopping good deed with local Catholics and Quakers in their local Somerfield's.
