With the support of local community leader, Professor Nathan Abrams, the party took place on the University of Wales, Bangor, campus, providing party goers with breath taking views across the Welsh countryside.
A buffet lunch was provided, and Project Manager, Tori Joseph, brought authentic Purim hamantaschen all the way from Golders Green which was especially appreciated by the younger community members, who were able to sample the treat for the very first time.
The event was a great success, and was attended by over forty members of both the local Jewish and Christian communities. Some Jewish families travelled from as far as Mid Wales, Chester, Manchester, and Birmingham to join in the festivities.
It was a chance for communities from Wales and the North West to meet and celebrate the Jewish holidays together, and feedback from the party was universally positive with hopes of further events in the region in the future.
Articles about the party were featured in the Welsh regional newspapers, as well as The Jewish Telegraph.
A charity collection was taken on the day, raising £195 for Camp Simcha UK.
