Social Signposting

There’s such a lot to do in London, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start. So we’ve compiled some useful lists to help you dip your toe in. Many members also want to meet other people, connected or unconnected with Judaism, so check out some of the suggestions in our Resource Pack.  Volunteering is one of the best ways to meet new people and give something back at the same time, so have a look at the DO IT website in the pack for ideas.

If you’d prefer to go along to an event with someone from the Mavar network of ‘befrienders’ we’ll happily link you up.  Just email matty@mavar.org.uk  or give us a call: 07986 977 020.

For Mavar’s Resource Pack listing:

  • events where you can meet people
  • apps for making new friends
  • websites which list interesting places to go around London – Jewish and not Jewish
