In a collaboration between Glasgow UJIA, Maccabi and Giffnock and Newlands Hebrew Congregation, 50 Scottish youngsters tidied up the Jewish cemeteries at Sandymount, Glenduffhill and Cardonald and volunteered at care homes.
Giffnock and Newlands minister Rabbi Moshe Rubin took youngsters to the new branch of Mark’s Deli, where they asked shoppers to donate an item of food.
A similar initiative took place at the Hello Deli, with all donated goods distributed to the homeless.

Edinburgh University Students’ Association has failed in an attempt to introduce a full boycott of Israel.
A motion advocating comprehensive boycott, divestment and sanction action against the Jewish state was heavily defeated at EUSA’s annual meeting on Tuesday.
Around 700 students attended the debate, split across two lecture theatres, with only “a handful” backing anti-Israel action.
The motion had called on EUSA to join the global BDS movement and lobby the university to adopt the same approach.

Jewish Care Scotland hopes to raise £60,000 from its Rosh Hashanah appeal to help it maintain assistance to over 500 clients.
JCS chair Maureen Solomons said: “It is essential that we raise enough to ensure we can continue to deliver the care and support we know people want. Donations will help fund the professional social work team, including those with specialist knowledge in debt management, family problems and care in the community for older people.”
