Mosaic and our constituent Synagogues raise funds for a variety of local, national and international charities. Our recent fund raising has included:
- “ramp up the red”, a themed Friday night service followed by supper, in aid of British Heart Foundation
- Kiev Koppers for our twinned Community in the Ukraine
- Our annual Synagogue high holy day (Yom Kippur) fund raising for charities nominated by our members
- An evening with Jay Rayner, raising funds for Mosaic and in particular for our new home (on a new site that we are seeking in the Hatch End / Harrow Weald /Bushey borders)
- Mosaic Reform decided in 2013 to direct their ad-hoc fundraising efforts in supporting one nominated charity, and that charity should be the Karen Morris Memorial Trust. The trust is a charity set up to continue the fundraising initiative of a 23 year old student who passed away in 1998, just one year after being diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukemia. The trust’s main objective is to provide facilities for leukemia patients and their families which would not otherwise be available, thus alleviating just a little the emotional and physical pain at what is inevitably a very bleak period in their lives.
