Over the weekend Kingston & Surbiton District US, Richmond US, Sutton & District US and Wimbledon Chabad teamed up with Tribe to host more than 40 children for the South London Inter-Cheder Sports Day 2017.

Tribe madrichim (leaders) and a team of local volunteers led the children through games and races from sprinting to welly-throwing, ball-dribbling skills, and an egg-and-spoon race for the smallest participants. Older youth had to coordinate with each other on the surprisingly difficult three-legged race!

United Synagogue Chief Executive Steven Wilson was on-hand to present participants with medals, and Tribe provided boxes of pastries and cake, but it was the friendly inter-communal atmosphere which really made the day.

Simeon Lando of Kingston & Surbiton District Synagogue said: “We were delighted to bring the children of the southwest London communities together with support from Tribe, and we look forward to more joint events.”

Ben Vos, Tribe Community Liaison Manager, commented: “We are building Tribe’s presence in our communities at Kingston, Richmond and Sutton, and the Inter-Cheder Sports Day was a really fun and positive example of that. Thank you to everyone who took part!”
