Edgware Women’s Lodge is an active and vibrant Lodge. It is run by our President, Naomi Lesser, and a supportive Council. Our Lodge recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. We meet fortnightly in the daytime, with meetings held at Jewish Care’s Gordon Court.
We welcome visitors to our meetings, who often join our friendly Lodge.
Excellent speakers’ talks in our forthcoming programme include something for all interests, ranging from “Jewish Refugees of the Middle East and North Africa”, to “Glenn Miller, the man and His Music”. A main attraction of our meetings is the delicious lunch of home-made sandwiches and cakes, provided at a very moderate cost.
Edgware Women’s Lodge raises funds for UK and Israeli causes, including BBUK core charities, the Jews of the Ukraine, and the Israeli town of Qiryat Gat.
In addition we maintain personal contact with “our” Israeli family, who were victims of a terrorist attack, and we send Chanucah gifts to their four children.
Social functions include a Members’ Summer Lunch; we also host a Succoth Tea for the elderly residents of Gordon Court.
