Suburb's big food drive bears fruit

January 20, 2011

A giant fruit salad prepared by 300 Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue volunteers on Saturday night has benefited the less fortunate.
More than 2,200 portions were made up from fruit donated by congregants.

Around 1,500 were delivered to homeless shelters and hostels in Camden and central London. The remainder were distributed to families in Barnet and Hackney.

The venture was organised by the shul's chesed committee.

HGS's Rabbi Anthony Knopf said: "It was wonderful to see so many synagogue members, including lots of children, come together to support such a fantastic event."

Teenager scares off burglars

November 4, 2010

Police have praised the actions of a quick-thinking teenage girl who scared off three would-be burglars as they tried to break into her home in north west London.

The girl, who is in her early teens, heard the men in the garden of her Hendon home. She called Barnet police to raise the alarm and then called her father to alert him to the situation.

Within minutes, officers raced to the girl's aid. The men fled the scene. Police said later that two men had been arrested and they were still seeking the third.

JCoSS head Jeremy Stowe-Lindner was moved to tears on Monday as the UK's first cross-communal Jewish secondary school welcomed its initial 148 pupils in Barnet.

"I have to admit that a small tear welled up in my eye when the first students walked in," Mr Stowe-Lindner said. "I am so proud of what we have achieved here already, completing the building in just 18 months so that we can offer some of the very best facilities in the country.

"We have assembled an incredible team, a fantastic building and, from what I have seen, an energetic and enthusiastic group of students."
