18th November is Mitzvah Day!
Please put this date in your diaries. We hope to have a few Mitzvah Day projects that you can help with. Check back here and see our Shul Facebook page for details of all of them. The first project is The Joely Bear Appeal and they are looking forward to welcoming EMS members to their next blood donor session on Mitzvah Day at Edgware Blood Donor Centre.
Joely Bear sessions are not like normal blood donor sessions: they’re community events – open to all – complete with children’s activities and lots of kosher refreshments.
Please join them and help save lives! It’s Mitzvah Day, which is all about giving back, not giving money. Book your appointment today at www.joelybear.org.uk/edgware For more details and for ways that you can help staff this email Gaynor.
