Pesach is a special time of year. Every Pesach, Jewish families come together to commemorate our ancestors’ escape from slavery. This annual opportunity to remember our collective past has always been a crucial part of what it means to be Jewish.
For Norwood – which started as a fund for the Jewish poor in 1795 – this is a special year. We will be spending it commemorating and celebrating the fact that we have been proudly serving our community for an astonishing 225 years.
Our sages teach us that the main purpose of the Seder night is "our duty to tell the story". So what better way for Norwood to mark our 225th Pesach than by telling the stories of some of the extraordinary people we have had the honour and privilege to support over the years.
Norwood has been here for 225 years. With your support we will be here for ever. Please help us to keep telling stories about the extraordinary lives of the people we support by donating to our Pesach campaign.
