A tea was held at Jewish Care’s Ella and Ridley Jacobs House to remember the fundraising contribution of Rabbi Monty Aaronberg.
Rabbi Aaronberg, who died earlier this year, raised £84,000 for the Hendon home through annual opera concerts at Hendon Synagogue. He also volunteered regularly at the home, reading the Torah at services.
Jewish Care CEO Simon Morris said the charity owed Rabbi Aaronberg a debt of gratitude. “Monty was a very keen opera fan and he single-handedly organised the concert for 10 years. Each year, over 100 people would attend.”
