Ruislip Synagogue's Candles Burn Brightly

The Chanukah party at Ruislip Synagogue held on Sunday 21st December was a veritable cornucopia of different experiences! First of all there was a variety of musical and sight recognition quizzes, all designed most effectively by Marion Main then Alice and Samuel Davis took the floor and entertained the 65 plus audience with their musical renderings on oboe, violin and piano. The two talented siblings were able to produce a melee of musical surprises. It was in-house entertainment which also created very much a family atmosphere.

Rabbi Stanley Coten welcomed everyone to this Chanukah party and said how pleased he was that so many people had come to partake of the delicious hot meal, provided by the Ladies Guild and thanked everyone for their help and assistance. He involved all the children in lighting the Chanukah candles and concluded by hoping to see everyone at Synagogue in the coming week!

Andrea Batsman then thanked Alice and Samuel very much for their music and mentioned that their parents Michelle and Hugh had also bought a new keyboard specially for them for this occasion which was a wonderful contribution to the entertainment.

The raffle raised £150 and provided those who won with interesting gifts.
