Title number: 2704
LSA ID: LSA/3541
Description: The video magazine contains five separate items and is introduced by Victor Leaf, who provides information on the concept for the magazine and future plans for its coverage of Jewish activities in Redbridge and life in Israel. The first item shows children from the Redbridge Jewish Youth and Community Centre presenting a traditional greeting of apple and honey to visitors to a bank. The second item, introduced by Maggie Shelter, considers the problem of finding activities for children in the hot summer months. Reporter Hilary Astley looks at solutions found by 450 parents in the Redbridge Youth and Community Centre summer school run by Ken Hammond and the Barkingside Sun Scheme run by Sandra Bloom at the Barkingside Jewish Youth Centre on Carlton Drive. The children engage in craft activities, food making, games and religious education. The scheme organisers speak about their aims with the summer schemes. The third item covers the work of Dora Gabrel and the Essex 35 group; Barry Abrahams reports from Gants Hill where Dora Gabrel attempts to raise awareness about the situation facing Russian Jews. The fourth item catches up with Hara, a Jewish dancing group on their visit to the Jewish Youth and Community Centre. The final item presents the mystery of the 'Dragon of Ilford' a front garden hedge cut into the shape of a dragon by a Redbridge resident.
