Four generations came together to raise nearly £2,000 for a synagogue at its summer fair.
The Woodford Liberal Synagogue held its summer fair in Lamburne End, Essex, two weeks ago.
A range of activities, including Hook-the-Duck, tug of war, a tombola, and throw a sponge at the Rabbi, kept the crowd entertained.
And the money was raised through the sale of refreshments.
Rabbi Richard Jacobi, of Woodford Liberal Synagogue, Malborough Road, South Woodford, said: “Blessed with a lovely British summer afternoon, I was able to enjoy three, if not four generations mingling, smiling, laughing and chatting with each other.
“On such a day even having wet sponges thrown at me was an uplifting communal experience.”
