Jewish Cultural Awareness Training

On 10th January 2022 the ARSP volunteers took part in a ‘Jewish Cultural Awareness Training’ evening. Due to the pandemic the training had to take place online. The training was run by Fran Horwich, head of volunteer services at the Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR), an organisation providing an extensive range of social and welfare services to Jewish victims of Nazi persecution living in the UK.

The training offered our volunteers the opportunity to learn more about Jewish life in the UK, about religious holidays, kosher food and rites of passage.

The evening was a great success. Our thanks go to Fran Horwich and the AJR for running the training for us, for providing so much interesting information and for creating an atmosphere in which our volunteers felt comfortable to ask many questions!
