Project Chesed, the charitable arm of the United Synagogue, has launched a footwear collection initiative in support of Shoe Aid for Africa. Unwanted shoes, particularly in children’s sizes, will be distributed to needy communities.
Hampstead Garden Suburb Synagogue was first off the blocks with a shoe party.
In return for their practical donation, children received instruction in the art of shoe graffiti.
