Aish UK has had an incredibly busy couple of months welcoming thousands of new students onto eight campuses across the country as well as providing hundreds with delicious meals and meaningful experiences over Sukkot and Simchat Torah!
Some key highlights include: Genesis, Aish UK’s pioneering educational campus programme has delivered over 255 hot shwarmas to Freshers across six universities as part of its “Shwarmarama Campaign”. Aish Essex hosted their Annual Sukkot BBQ, attracting 120 students and young professionals to the home of Rabbi Mendy and Gitel Brukirer. Over 1,000 students and young professionals were welcomed into the homes of our Aish families for meals over the Chagim. Aish rabbis gave inspiring sermons at communities across the country over Sukkot.
Some quotes from our programme participants:
One of our first year graduates commented, “I have met the most kind hearted people through Genesis, friends that I know I will keep for life…it has made my first year the best it could have been and I am so grateful for that.”
One Manchester resident commented, “I just wanted to tell you how fab [the sermon] was today…the stories and messages were very moving and helped me, as well as others, tap into the power of the day.”
Rabbi Daniel Rowe, Executive Director of Aish UK, remarks “At a time when so many people claim young Jews have little interest in their heritage, it is fantastic to see hundreds of people connecting and getting involved in Sukkot activities across the country.”
