Kingston Jewish Day Centre (Riverside Club)

Having been established for nearly 30 years, we continue to welcome the elder members of this community and the surrounding area, to a day full of activity including a home cooked lunch and tea.

Our club welcomes ladies and gentlemen over the age of 60 years.

We meet at Kingston Synagogue hall on alternate Tuesdays from 10.30am to 3.30pm and our activities include cards and a discussion group. In the afternoons there is always excellent entertainment arranged, such as a quiz, music or a speaker..

Morning coffee is served on arrival, and there is a delicious home-cooked three course lunch and afternoon tea. Transport can usually be provided.

You will meet like minded people to chat and listen to the entertainment. Why not participate in our discussion group? You will have a wonderful day. We are open every other Tuesday.

KYM Social Group (“Kingston Young Marrieds”)

An enthusiastic social group comprising couples and singles from south-west London and Surrey who get together once a month in each other’s homes for a light-hearted and relaxing mixture of quizzes, BBQs and social events.

“Kingston Young Marrieds”, as it was originally known, started over 30 years ago and, despite the passage of time, is still going strong (with more than a few original members!) under the name of “KYM”. So if you’re looking for some lively conversation and a diverse programme of activities, why not find out what KYM has to offer.

If you are 50-65 and would like to meet other members of the community, you are welcome to join us once a month on a Sunday evening for coffee and cake, accompanied by some stimulating mental (and occasionally physical) entertainment. For details, contact David Sulkin on 020 8398 7791.


League of Jewish Women

The League is a national welfare organisation where dedicated volunteers undertake projects in the community, adding value to the lives of people of all ages, backgrounds and cultures.

The Coombe Group members are involved in the Riverside Day Centre, which meets twice monthly. They visit the elderly in their own homes and help with their shopping, and visit Nightingale House. They arrange an annual summer outing to Wisley for the elderly and disabled, and have parties to mark the festivals for the housebound and lonely.

Recently members have become involved with Head Start, which enables cancer patients to wear attractive scarves, in Kingston and West Middlesex hospitals, locally.

To raise funds for their welfare activities, the Group holds regular bridge lunches and there is a flourishing monthly Book Circle in Surbiton.

Members are also able to take advantage of a range of interesting talks and seminars arranged at the League Office in London and join LeagueArtz, a cultural programme of theatre outings and exhibitions.


WIZO

We have about 100 members drawn from a wide spectrum of synagogues in the area. We hold events inn the day and evening, often with a Jewish or Israeli connection. We invite excellent speakers to keep us up to date about the Middle East. We hold two or three lunches and occasional outings each year.

There is a thriving group of bridge players who meet for monthly lunches. We also have a Book Circle which meets for four mornings in the summer, when we read and discuss two books, led by our excellent tutor, Dr Helen Setright.

Kingston WIZO is involved with Yom Ha’atz Ma’ut celebrations in the synagogue, and also raises money for Jewish Women’s Week. We are a large and friendly group of women of all ages, often accompanied by their partners,  and we look forward to welcoming new members.


 

South London Israel Forum

The South London Israel Forum was formed some years ago to encourage and inspire an interest in Israel, with all its many medical and technological achievements.

The committee is made up of representatives from most of the South London Jewish communities. Open meetings are held at various venues around South London with well – informed speakers covering a wide variety of interesting topics. There is ample opportunity for questions and debate.
