Wow! Over thirty children at the Hanukkah party at the shul. The most we’ve had for many years. Deborah Carpenter who organised the variety show, after the lighting of a tableful of Hanukkiahs, had put together a lovely entertainment from the youngest—a two-year old violin player, with his mother, Juliana to the Rosh Chodesh lady singers with a song about Hanukkah, plus a live dreidl! (Sarah Carpenter) and of course, the food – contributed by many. Congratulations to Deborah and her family for their hard work. An interesting fact, Juliana’s son is playing a 1/64th size violin!

Afterwards we went down to the Forum to welcome Rabbi Kaye from Manchester with his family who lit the Hanukkiah, with Peter’s help, for a big crowd. A lovely event.
