Harrow Foodbank – Give Generously for Pesach

“If your brother becomes poor…uphold him” (Leviticus 25:35)

Harrow Foodbank is part of the nationwide network of foodbanks supported by the Trussell Trust, working to combat hunger and poverty.   Mosaic contributed to the Harrow Foodbank from the old building in Bessborough Road.  Now we are in our new building we can re-start this important interfaith social action project.

Please help us re-establish this social action project.  It is easy to do so:

When you are next doing your shopping, please purchase some items from the Harrow Foodbank shopping list for someone who is in need.  There is a list (updated monthly) which can be found on the Harrow Foodbank website https://harrow.foodbank.org.uk/give-help/donate-food/.   Items can then be deposited in the container which will shortly be placed in the cloakroom area at. MJC in Stanmore Hill.  If anyone would like to help with moving the items from MJC to the Harrow Food bank warehouse, which is opposite Harrow Tesco, please contact:  admin@choosemasaic.org

Please note the following items that are currently not needed: BAKED BEANS, TINNED SOUP, CEREAL, OATS/PORRIDGE, TINNED TUNA.  BAGS FOR LIFE ARE URGENTLY NEEDED.

If you want to take items direct to the foodbank (eg heavy items) please do so.  (See the website. https://harrow.foodbank.org.uk/  /call  0208-416 7344 for opening times).

Monday 22nd April – Shacharit and Siyum
First-borns should fast on the day leading up to Seder night; but the tradition is that this fast is cancelled by attending a ‘siyum’ (finishing a unit of Jewish study), eating at which is its own mitzvah. As such, we will have a morning minyan at shul at 8.15AM. After the service the Talmud class will make a siyum on the first 6 chapters of Masekhet Sotah of the Babylonian Talmud. The service including breakfast should take about an hour, please do come to support the minyan if possible!
