Finding a recipe for better relations

    A cookery session at JW3 involving members of six faiths was a taster for Mitzvah Day.

    Jewish, Sikh, Zoroastrian, Bukhari Muslim, Ismaili Muslim and Greek Orthodox volunteers from across London joined forces to prepare a meal for clients of Ashford Place in Cricklewood, which assists the disadvantaged and marginalised with issues including homelessness, mental and physical health, substance misuse and unemployment.

    “Volunteers arrived as strangers and left as friends,” reported Daniela Pears, Mitzvah Day’s interfaith chair.

    “While we chopped we chatted. We learnt a little about each other’s faiths and compared our Yom Kippur fasting to the fasting over Ramadan and the period of dietary limitation for the Greek Orthodox community.”
