This week saw the launch of “Aish Unfiltered” – a brand new programme for young professionals based in London. 45 people enjoyed a bowling and pizza evening at Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes in Holborn. This was the first of a new series of weekly events designed to give busy young Jews across London a chance to unwind and meet like-minded peers in a fun and relaxed environment. The programme will offer a mixture of social activities and interactive discussion-based classes.
On Sunday Aish Unfiltered will be hosting a social action campaign called “Change a Life”. The specially crowdfunded campaign has been raising funds to purchase “survival kits” including sleeping bags, clothing and food essentials which will then be distributed to homeless individuals around London.
The new programme marks a fresh phase of expansion for Aish’s London-based young professionals department which operates primarily out of West Hampstead. Aish will be offering new opportunities for young professionals based in surrounding areas such as Hendon and Borehamwood, as well as empowering and supporting young individuals who wish to launch their own initiatives and social networks.
Rabbi Eli Birnbaum, one of Aish’s newest educators commented, “As the working life of London’s young professionals becomes increasingly hectic and demanding, we see a growing need to respond with an increasingly broad and diverse number of opportunities. Ranging from meet & greets, to interactive classes to social action projects and more, hosted in multiple locations, we are excited to offer ‘something for everyone’.”
