Children in Highfield Gardens, Golders Green had a wonderful time this week making up hundreds of Mishloach Manot packages for recipients of the Charity GIFT.
An initiative of Family Maierovitz, this has become a yearly event that involves many children in the street during the half term prior to Purim.
Ilana Maierovitz, aged 14 said- “Packing for GIFT was so much fun! We wait a whole year for it”
