To appreciate the breadth of Mitzvah Day activities, you need to experience some of its projects first hand. So with Mitzvah Day committee member Ruth Smilg as my chauffeur and guide, I embarked on a whistlestop tour of events in the capital.
First up was the “collectathon” at New North London Synagogue in Finchley, where at 10am, the hall was filled with an ever-growing pile of clothes, shoes, food, toiletries and stationery.

In an effort to buck the trend of falling cheder attendance, Finchley Reform Synagogue is replacing its religion school with a new learning programme, Kochavim.
Launched next week, the programme is intended to offer “a cutting edge experiential style of education”. Pupils will choose from a range of modules relating to Jewish life — and once a month will be joined by parents in their activities.

Work began this week on a £4 million building for the New North London Masorti Synagogue — almost a year after the ground-breaking ceremony at the community’s base at the Sternberg Centre site in Finchley.
Congregants will still be able to attend services and other activities in the shul’s existing premises during the works. However, they are being warned to watch out for extra-deep bore holes, drilled to accommodate a ground-source heat pump, which will help reduce CO2 emissions by up to 20 per cent.

Finchley Synagogue dropped its usual Rosh Hashanah appeal in favour of a volunteering commitment.
At the urging of Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, congregants were invited to pledge to any one from 10 volunteering options. Rabbi Mirvis said. “There was an incredible sense of the community coming together to find time to help those who need it most.”
