Aaron Breslauer, 14, has combined his love of mountain climbing with raising £2,000.

Aaron, from St John’s Wood, took on a series of challenging alpine climbs to raise money for the Jewish charity Chazak.

The teenager climbed several famous routes in the French and Swiss Alps including an especially tricky climb up the face of the Brivent cliff of Mont Blanc

Aaron is following in the footsteps of his father, Keith Breslauer, the former Chairman of the St John’s Wood Synagogue, who is a keen climber and fundraiser.

Aaron said: “While the climbs were very challenging it was exciting to be conquer my first major summits.

“Meanwhile the thought that people benefited from my efforts really added to my sense of achievement.”

Aaron funded the trip using money from his Bar Mitzvah.

Chazak was established by Rabbi Shlomo Farhi and Rabbi Moshe Levy to further the education of Sefardic Jews.
