Youth & Adult Trips
Covid-19 has taken its toll especially on those who care for our vulnerable and also on our youth. The two groups were brought together when the youth prepared baked goods packages for the carers. The teenage volunteers and the carers alike gained tremendously.
The Kollel and the community families who we are privileged to call our friends, spent an uplifting Shabbos together in Manchester. The food, the activities, the talks from guest speaker Rabbi Shafier, left the Kollel members and community members extremely inspired. One teenager made this the first Shabbos she kept in its entirety!
The second Kollel Purim Carnival at the Zone and Brodetsky Primary School provided fun for all the family. From balloon shaping to Mishloach Manot making, bouncy castles to caricature drawings, the Purim atmosphere was electric!
Hearing the stories will never compare to seeing the sites. Working with JRoots, the Kollel have organised two trips to Poland together with teenagers. The trip has proven to be a source of inspiration and pride in our heritage. One teenager decided that Shabbat was for her after this trip.
Brought a magical feeling to Leeds despite the cold.We gathered for inspiration from Rabbi SB Glickman and lively dancing in BHH complete with a delicious meal all the way from Manchester by JS on wheels.
Many of the women in the Kollel have enjoyed learning one-on-one with women from the community. There have been several collaborative talks and discussions for women complete with refreshments, as well as a fortnightly talk. This has taken a temporary break during the pandemic but is soon to resume.
A special Shabbos organised by the Kollel, uniting the entire community. Two communal Friday night dinners, in Brodetsky and Etz Chaim along with a guest speaker. The memories of the Traveling Chasidim with their furry shtreimels in Leeds still bring an occasional smile.
With cheese cake, quiche, and decor to match Mt Sinai itself! One-on-one learning, women’s talk and coming together to hear Rabbi Andrew Shawe. An unforgettable way to enter ‘The time of the giving of our Torah’.
Jewish men are not known for their DIY skills but year after year the global challenge is taken on – build a Sukkah and make it beautiful! The Leeds Kollel recognised that this is by no means a small feat, and show-cased the amazing Succah creations in Leeds in a fierce competition!
The saddest day in the Jewish calendar and so often ignored was transformed into a meaningful day.There was education the entire family through a children’s event- slipper decorating; edible ‘Western Walls’ and a live ‘Roman performance.
Sharing the richness of Jewish life, learning and values.
