LJY-Netzer members join Help Calais project

20th September 2015

Ten members of LJY-Netzer spent the day at a London storage facility on Wednesday, to aid the charity Help Calais in organising and sending off donations of clothing and other goods to French refugees camps.

In an entirely peer organised event, the Liberal Judaism youth team, aged from 18 to 22, joined with others of all ages and from all walks of life in sorting, boxing and eventually loading the combination of tents, coats, food and clothing onto the lorries and trucks that were taking them to distribution centres in the camps, just outside of Calais.

LJY-Netzer movement worker Sam Alston said: “This action takes the Jewish principles of helping the strangers within our land and supporting your neighbours and applies it to the modern world around us.

“This initiative is completely within the spirit of what LJY-Netzer has been teaching on our events for decades.”

Sukkot campaigning events are now being planned in Finchley and Norwich, along with a fundraising disco later on in the year.
