Families from the Chigwell and Hainault Synagogue enjoyed learning about Sukkot
In the run up to the Jewish celebration of Sukkot, young families have been taught about the importance of the seven day holiday.
Last week, members of the Chigwell and Hainault Synagogue travelled to Parkside Farm to pick, and of course sample, fresh fruit and vegetables.
Sukkot, or the Feast of Booths, is celebrated on the 15th day of September and sees Jewish people from all over the world building Sukkahs. Some even sleep in the outside buildings which resemble the humble huts that Israelites lived in, in the desert.
Rabbi Shindler, whose three-year-old daughter Temima picked a giant marrow, gave presentations on how to grow fruit and vegetables and devised fun sheets for the children.
He said: "It was a wonderful, fun and educational morning, for children and adults alike.
“I am delighted that Chigwell & Hainault Synagogue has such a vibrant and thriving group of young families."
