For US Taxpayers – the West London Synagogue Friends Fund at CAF America

‘Social Action’ at WLS can be defined as hands-on work that helps the vulnerable and the disadvantaged in the wider community beyond our doors, while at the same time helping us create stronger bonds among our community.

Our current projects:


    Feeding Folk is a project that brings together Jews and Muslims to prepare and then deliver healthy home cooked food to rough sleepers in central London. It has continued at the same levels at 2018 and solidified its volunteer and support base. We have prepared and delivered between 100-200 meals at each session and meet once or twice a month.


    The Grenfell Kids Day Camp was set up in the wake of the Grenfell Tower fire. We have now run four five-day activity camps for 30-40 kids affected by the fire. Each camp engages a team of Jewish and Muslim youth leaders to provide a fun activity filled day camp for the kids.


    FoodCycle is a national charity that turns supermarket food waste into healthy meals for vulnerable communities. Marylebone FoodCycle is run jointly by WLS and St Paul’s church in Lisson Grove.

    We do advise all our donors that the synagogue will retain in its general overhead costs, 20% of each donation, to cover the expenses of administering, supporting and making effective the relevant project.
