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.”
