KKL host Chanukah lunch for clients and guests

On 20 December 2022, KKL and JNF UK staff and trustees, together with 50 clients and guests, were enthralled, entertained, fed and watered at Hendon United Synagogue for the annual KKL Chanukah lunch. Attendees were treated to a delicious three course meal. Doughnuts were of course part of the menu! Rabbi Ginsbury said a few words which added to the sense of occasion. David Goodman, Director of Community Relations at KKL linked up live at the House of Excellence in Kiryat Malachi, one of JNF UK’s flagship projects, with Dan Shapira, JNF UK representative in Israel and some students at the centre to discuss how their lives have improved as a result of them using the facilities available. Entertainment was provided by soul and Motown singer John Sessions that was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. Participants of the Legacy Mission enjoyed having a catch up at the lunch as well. The afternoon concluded with candle lighting of the menorah.

David said, “Clients coming together as friends to enjoy an afternoon showcasing the work of JNF UK was so very special.”
