 Letter to the Ilford Recorder
Dear sir,

We write in response to your article of 2 May 2015 headlined "Potential SWESRS and Sukkat Shalom merger ‘makes sense’ in Redbridge". As the text of the article makes clear, the proposed merger in the borough is between its two Liberal synagogues, Bet Tikvah and Woodford Liberal Synagogue, not the two Reform synagogue mentioned in the headline. As the respective chairs of SWESRS and Sukkat Shalom, we can confirm our synagogues are thriving as independent synagogues and have no plans to merge, though we will continue to co-operate as we have done for a number of years. We wish our soon-to-be-merged colleagues every strength in their new venture, but have no intention of joining them.

The Jewish Museum in Camden

For Richer For Poorer

Weddings Unveiled

which runs from 
13 February to 31 May 2015.

The exhibition showcases our rich and evocative collection of material relating to weddings within the immigrant Jewish community from the 1880s to the mid-20th century.

Wedding dresses, invitations and menus will be displayed alongside the museum’s huge archive of vintage wedding photographs, particularly those of the East End wedding photographer Boris Bennett.

Reeva, Frank Godson & Sue Barnett went to see this most fascinating  exhibition.  The exhibits were most interesting, the photos were delightful and the films were incredible to see.  Its worth going just to look at the caterers costs etc.  Dont miss this
