Mark your Calendar – Chai’s spectacular Rosh Hashanah Gift Sale is back!

After successfully pivoting the Chai Rosh Hashanah Gift Sale last year to a socially distanced outdoor Artisan Market, we are so excited to announce that this year’s event will take place back inside our Flagship centre in Hendon.

On Wednesday 1st September, we will be fulfilling all your retail therapy needs with over 30 vendors offering an eclectic mix of beautiful homeware, Judaica, jewellery, clothes, flowers and chic millinery.

And it doesn’t stop there! Back by popular demand, our Artisan Market will have a tempting selection of indulgent food and drink stalls including a gin bar, freshly cured smoked salmon, chocolates and of course Tony Page’s delicious honey cakes.

To keep you fuelled whilst doing your shopping, Oh Brown Bear’s iced coffee and cookie van; Crepes & Shakes London by One Ashbourne and Ben Tenenblat’s famous ‘Crave’ trailer will be on hand serving mouth-watering gourmet street food, snacks and refreshments for you to enjoy.

Not to be missed, powerhouse husband and wife team, Sarit Packer and Itamar Srulovich of Honey & Co, will be hosting an exclusive live session. Please look out on our social media channels and website for further details as due to limited spaces pre-booking is essential.

For £10, Chai supporters can enter a prize draw with fabulous prizes such as a Porsche driving experience, Jimmy Choo clutch bag and an Orchant selection C.Gars Malt Scottish Highland Whisky. To enter, visit

The Gift Sale will also see the launch of a new chocolate cookbook in aid of Chai. ‘Babka, Boulou & Blintzes – Jewish Chocolate Recipes from Around the world’, is packed with a tantalising range of sweet and savoury recipes for every occasion, from ‘sourdough rye brownies’ and ‘chocolate and roasted beet ice-cream’ to ‘Sicilian caponata’ and ‘chocolate chilli’. 

Debra Zender and Julia Abrams, Chai Society Co-chairs said: “We are thrilled to be back at the Chai centre and be able to welcome so many familiar faces taking stalls and some new ones coming on board too. We look forward to a wonderful event!”

Chai’s chairman Louise Hager said: “the Gift Sale will be extra special this year as it’s the first major event back in our centre since Covid. Not only is this an important fundraising event, it’s an ideal opportunity for many to visit Chai for the first time and experience the special atmosphere that has such a positive effect on all those who benefit from our specialised services.”
