Dear Chaya

Re: Mitzvah Day

I am writing on behalf of the residents and staff at Rubens House, who had a wonderful morning yesterday, when they were entertained by the Cheder children.

The children were all fantastic, we so appreciated the preparation and work they and their teachers had put in, to make their presentations so successful.

The interaction after the performances was lovely – the residents really thrive on seeing and talking to children. It was nice to see so many parents participating too.

We look forward to more visits from the Cheder children, and to some of the residents being invited to your end of term events. I am sure we will build a good relationship and show the children that Mitzvah Day can be every day!

Warmest regards

Gillian Gold
