Training sessions for Ukrainian refugees were held last month at the Hampstead Synagogue Community Center.
Camden Caremark, in conjunction with Camden Council, ran four-day sessions aimed at helping refugees integrate into the UK community and supporting those in need of immediate care.
In June, the synagogue hosted a Summer Concert for Ukraine which raised over £10,000 for World Jewish Relief’s emergency appeal. The recording, watched by more than 2,000 people, can be viewed at theus.tv/summer-concert-for-ukraine.

WJR President Henry Grunwald QC thanked the Hampstead Synagogue and the Shabbaton Choir for hosting the evening, and paid tribute to the Jewish community’s support for Ukrainians.
“So far, the British Jewish community has provided fantastic support for what World Jewish Relief has done and is doing in Ukraine, neighboring countries and the UK. Thank you for helping to support Ukrainians.
Gabriel Herman, who produced the concert for the synagogue, said: “Our congregation takes its social responsibility very seriously and is delighted to help Ukrainians at this very difficult time. Historically, our membership has been made up of refugees, so we sympathize with their plight and that is why our interfaith work is so important to us.
