Read Rabbi Danny Rich's Pastoral letter for Tisha B'Av and 100th Anniverary of Worlld War 1

If members are looking for ways to make a difference that are consistent with the values of NPLS / Liberal Judaism - promoting both co-existence and Progressive Judaism - then please consider donating to the following projects; they are making a difference to the lives of those who are particularly vulnerable because they are in missile range from Gaza and with little shelter:

  • Funding for Progressive Judaism helps fund both the Leo Baeck Education Centre, Haifa (see their recent work here) and Jewish Arab Community Centre, Acre which is currently bringing together 300 Israeli Jewish and Arab (Christian and Muslim) children for their summer programme

  • Leket Israel, Israel's National Foodbank which is currently struggling to feed seasonal and day workers hit by the crisis. For more info on Leket and to donate click here.

Please Donate Food
We have joined forces with the Trussell Trust to collect food for Hillingdon Food Bank.  This is a great opportunity for us to look out into the wider community and help people at times of crisis.
