Over £2,300 raised by Walk the Line 2017
On 16th April, 7 committed volunteers walked 20 miles through London’s Jewish history, from the historic East End to contemporary Jewish North London. Having assembled before 8am in order to reach our start point by 9, our undertaking – taking nearly eleven hours – took us from the UK’s oldest synagogues and early Jewish businesses, via the legacy of Britain’s medieval Jewry in the City and homes of Karl Marx and Benjamin Disraeli, to the thriving communities and cultural centres of North London. You can see the locations the team visited and discover their fascinating history on social media.
The team has already raised a spectacular £2,344, and donations are still coming in. This money will go towards our work with communities in Belarus, helping them to preserve, revitalise and contribute to their own Jewish history.
