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:

    • PEACE BY PIECE

    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.

    • GRENFELL KIDS DAY CAMP

    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

    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.
