A team of adults who receive support from Kisharon recently visited a number of US Communities where they spent time polishing and brightening the Judaica at the Synagogues in time for the festivals.
In conjunction with US Chesed, the team led by Ray Temple, a silver polishing consultant, visited Finchley, Mill Hill, Muswell Hill and St John’s Wood United Synagogues where they were faced with the challenging task of restoring the shine of a wide range of Judaica including; breastplates, candlestick holders, Rimonim, Yads, washing cups, bowls and more.
In just a few hours, the difference was truly impressive as the Kisharon team had restored the Judaica to their former glory.
Staff members from the Communities were very grateful for the hard work put in by the Kisharon team.
Jennifer Weider, Administrator of St John’s Wood said:
“We are so grateful to Kisharon and the team at US Chesed for arranging this fantastic service. We are sure that our services over the Yomim Noraim will be enhanced by having such beautifully polished silverware. Thank you to all those who have been involved.”
Jo Cowen, Administrator from Muswell Hill said:
“As usual, Ray was charming, the team from Kisharon diligent and the results beautiful.”
Michelle Minsky, Director of US Chesed added:
“We are delighted to make use of the services of the young adults from Kisharon who have done an excellent job for our communities – yet at the same time the enjoyment of the young men is plain to see from the photo. Truly a win win situation.
Rabbi Shlomo Weltman, Employment Manager at Kisharon added:
“The group of men that have participated in the silver polishing project have truly enjoyed it. It has been a fantastic opportunity for them to integrate and contribute to the wider community by polishing the silver in a number of United Synagogue shuls. We hope that this will be a long term project that will benefit many more shuls.”
