Singing for the Mind

Singing for the Mind is a weekly singing group from the Liberal Jewish Synagogue for people with memory loss. Our participants greatly enjoy the hour-long singing and the option for a chat afterwards. The online sessions on Thursday afternoons means that participants do not need to live near the synagogue. The sessions are led by trained song leaders and a team of volunteers. We recommend (though it is not essential) that participants are accompanied by someone, whether family, friend or professional carer. Wherever and whoever you are, it is possible to join in.
