Woodford Forest : ‘UnHalloween Party’
An entertaining, Jewish alternative for children who would otherwise go trick-or-treating, with a magical Havdalah and plenty of treats.
To create a fun environment where children can cultivate friendships with Jewish peers; to enhance their sense of Jewish identity.
Evaluation from Rabbi Wollenberg
“We created an ‘UnHalloween Party’ billed as a “fun, magical and safe evening”. People especially liked that it was a social event and that it was a bit “different”. Members felt that this kind of ‘out the box’ program was an excellent way to attract children. I would recommend other communities do a similar programme on Halloween!”
- My son was delighted that there was an event on for children his age and above. More similar family events please!
- The children had a lovely evening – this was a great alternative to Halloween. They have already asked if they can go again next year!
- What a fantastic idea!
