Tikkun Olam 2020

Liverpool Reform Synagogue runs an annual fun day every year, including a sports day , raffle, stalls, cake competition and a bbq. They do this to raise funds for local charities as part of a Tikkun Olam Day.

Unfortunately we cannot hold our annual Tikun Olam day this year due to social distancing, but we have come up with ideas to still raise money for charity.

This year we are raising funds for Alder Hey. There are plenty of ways to get involved.
1. A virtual raffle
2. Mountain Challenge
3. Great Bake Off
4. Sports day in a bag

Tickets are £5 each (if one is not enough then of course as many tickets as you want is absolutely fine!!) Purchasing tickets can be done via PayPal using the email address kpnuts65@yahoo.com. Please make sure that you make reference to raffle ticket purchase and leave your name. Or contact Karen on 07710 190199 / social@lrshul.org The winning tickets will be drawn on Sunday 16 August at 11am.

1st prize -£50 Amazon voucher to spend on whatever you want
2nd prize – One4all voucher worth £25 which can be used online or instore.
3rd prize – A meal for two at Eton Place on Woolton Road, either eat in or take out.

Choose your mountain to climb, and then ask friends and family to sponsor you to climb its height, you just have to walk the equivalent distance. This can be done whether you are at home in your garden or whilst you are on your holiday during the week 10-16th August .

There are three mountains to choose from so you can pick the one that suits you. Mount Zion which is 765 metres high or 0.5 miles, Mount Sinai which is 7497 feet or 1.4 miles or Massada which is 4.5 km or 2.8 miles.

All participants will receive a certificate, and families (whatever age) can combine their miles! If you would like to take please click here to download the sponsorship form, and email  cheder@lrshul.org to let us know that you have completed the challenge by the 16th August 2020.

Bake a cake or biscuits and then simply send us a photo. The baking theme is SUMMER.

There will be three prizes:-
1. Most inventive/ artistic;
2. Most cute;
3. Most appetising.

Please send all photos to cheder@lrshul.org by 14th August. Winners will be announced on Zoom on Sunday 16th August at 11a.m.

During Tikun Olam we will be selling a ‘sports day in a bag’ so that you can have your own sports day at home. Each bag contains enough for two participants, and two medals. Please take your turns and get competing!

If you would like to buy a sports bag then please let us know by the 5th of August so that we can get them ready for you. They will be delivered to your home. The cost is £7 per bag. Any profits will be sent to our chosen charity, if you would like a bag please email cheder@lrshul.org  by 5th August. Certificates will be sent to all participants.
