On Sunday 30th January, Bromley Synagogue is planting a tree in Horniman Gardens to celebrate the Jewish New Year for Trees (Tu b’Shavat) and to remember Janusz Korczak. This year is the 100th anniversary of the visit to Forest Hill of Janusz Korczak who, together with the children in his care, perished in the Holocaust. More details of Korczak visit to Forest Hill can be found at http://sydenhamforesthillhistory.blogspot.com/2009/08/who-was-janusz-korczak.html
Bromley Synagogue would like to welcome the local community to join us for a short ceremony planting the tree at 2pm on Sunday 30th January in Horniman Gardens (close to the Sunken Garden – see map).
