Mitzvah Day 2016
Mitzvah is an integral part of Jewish life, it is a commandment in Jewish law and is often used to mean a good deed or an act of kindness.Enfield Council invited schools and organisations across the borough to support Mitzvah Day 2016 by collecting for Enfield Food Bank, as a way of bringing faiths together in support of those in need. Enfield County School collected food and household items and last week we were invited to deliver the goods our students had collected. Three Lower School students filled a car full of tins, packets and useful items and then took the goods to the site near the A10 where they were met by the food bank volunteers, a local synagogue, Enfield Council and the local press.The students got to look around the food bank and see the excellent work that is going on to help those less fortunate; the food bank is a huge warehouse and all the items collected will be sorted and organised into relevant sections ready for distribution. The goods our school collected were very well received and will be given to those struggling over the winter months.A big thank you to all Enfield County School students and their families who donated for this worthwhile cause and helped support Mitzvah 2016.
