Hendon’s Chabad House is expecting more than 100 guests at tonight’s Shabbat meal - most of them passengers grounded because of the volcanic dust cloud preventing flights taking off from London.
“We’ve had a lot of people calling up wanting a place to eat, a place to sleep,” said Chabad’s Rabbi Dovid Katz. “We have a massive pot of chicken soup ready.”
Having recently run a Seder for 300 people, mostly Israelis, in Golders Green, Rabbi Katz said: “It makes me feel like Pesach is happening again!”
