Newcastle JSoc is hosting its annual Succah Crawl on Wednesday evening.
Providing a Jewish twist to the traditional pub crawl, the event offers students the chance to eat dinner on the move – with each host providing a different course.
Free transport will be offered between the succot and the evening is free for students. For details visit the Newcastle JSoc group on Facebook.

Rescue teams in the Lake District have criticised a group of 23 yeshivah students who got stuck on a mountain for the second successive year.
An all-night rescue operation was launched on Sunday after the group from Gateshead Talmudical College became stuck while descending the 2,057ft Looking Stead, in one of Cumbria’s most remote valleys.
The male students, aged 14 to 23, were stranded on steep ground in mist and rain after wandering off a fell pass. Many were ill-prepared and were wearing T-shirts and trainers.

The Sunderland Synagogue building has been put up for sale, three years after the congregation disbanded.
Its owners, the Shlomo Memorial Fund, purchased the Grade II listed building in 2000 with the intention that the Jewish community would use it for as long as possible. The final Shabbat service was held in March 2006.
It had been hoped that the Gateshead community would also utilise the premises, but no interest had been expressed.

The Newcastle Jewish community is mourning the loss of a “brilliant, kind and unassuming young man”, after the death of 32-year-old Adam Rothapel last Tuesday.
Mr Rothapel, private secretary to Minister of Justice Bridget Prentice, died after being hit by a train at Finchley Road station in London.
Mr Rothapel, who lived in West Hampstead, was due to marry Sam Baden, his Australian-born fiancée, in August. He leaves behind his mother, Hilary.
