Why small #charities shouldn’t be overlooked

June 16, 2015

So, it’s small charity week and we decided to lend our support to the countless small charities out there by examining how difficult it is for them to make the impact and difference they want. There are 180,000 registered charities in England and Wales, all of which are recorded on the online register of charities. In addition, […]

Leonie’s View – The Sarajevo Haggadah: When Truth is Stranger than Fiction

March 24, 2015

As we approach Passover and Seder night, and we follow a service from the comfort of our dining table, family members often including several generations read and relive the sort of the Exodus through ritual and through the eternal Jewish story book, the Haggadah. This year our Seder will be even more meaningful as I […]

Volunteers have a Price on their Heads!

March 4, 2015

There is a famous saying about #volunteers: “Volunteers are worthless not because they are no good but,  because the work they do is impossible to cost out – its priceless.” Traditionally, most people volunteer because they will be making a difference to the lives of others, while also generating benefits for themselves – greater confidence, […]

Why I Love Volunteering – Guest Blog

December 2, 2014

Take a look at the ultimate volunteering role – The job is 24/7. There’s a zero hours contract with no guaranteed time off or holidays. There’s no sick pay and you must keep going even when you are literally dead on your feet. You must be able to multi task and give 100% energy, effort […]

Leonie’s View – When Volunteering is a True Mitzvah

October 2, 2014

I often write about volunteer stories that inspire or challenge me, or make me reflect. I mentioned last week the book Relational Judaism by Dr Ron Woolfson, and my thoughts on relationships have been so recently heightened by a series of events and above all personal challenges. My younger son has been a little unwell […]

Leonie’s View – Rosh Hashana 5775

September 19, 2014

For her regular feature on Jewish festivals, JVN Director Leonie Lewis talks about Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) and the relationships we can build with others in our community through volunteering… I am an avid reader, perusing a wide variety of novels, often recommendations by Richard & Judy! However, I do also regularly read more […]

It’s What We Go To School For!

September 3, 2014

This week, thousands upon thousands of schoolchildren up and down the country will be kissing their parents goodbye and making their way inside to school for the very first time. New Year 7s (aged 11+), and those returning for years 8-11 and Sixth Form, have a very exciting year ahead of them. Those of you […]

It’s the little things that count

August 18, 2014

You know those little things that make your day. Those simple tasks that go smoothly, a smile, a nice gesture… They just seem to make such a big difference. Life is in the little details. Ongoing small gestures can mean so much more than one grand display of love. Simple everyday tasks throughout the week/month […]

Will you Remember WW1 / Guest #Blog by Rose Green

August 7, 2014

The start of the centenary of World War One is upon us, a conflict that changed the world forever. The sacrifices made and service given across society will be reflected upon by people in the UK and far beyond. The impact of 1914-1918 is still evident today; war memorials stand guard in towns and villages […]

Your Country Needs You – #Volunteer Now !

August 4, 2014

  As I anticipate the pending arrival of Tisha B`av, the 25 hour fast, where Jews the world over mourn tragedies in our history, particularly the destruction of both Temples as well as a number of other tragedies that befell our people over the centuries, I am reminded that 100 years ago today, the Great […]
