CCJ North London Branch held its annual Advent/Chanukah celebration on the afternoon of Sunday December 8th 2019. We were hosted by St. Ignatius Roman Catholic church, south Tottenham.  Ivor Millman, chair of CCJ North London Branch Committee talked about the historical background to Chanukah, lit candles on his Chanukiah and said the blessings. A choir from the local Jewish Community then sang Ma’oz Tsur and other seasonal songs. Tony Lynas-Gray, a member of our committee and parishioner of our host church talked about Advent and lit Advent candles. There was then singing of seasonal items from the Polish choir of St. Ignatius. Finally those attending who included both the Mayor of Haringey and the Speaker (Civic Mayor) of Hackney all enjoyed seasonal refreshments.
