Child­ish joy

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT&ANALYSIS/ -

IN OUR SHUL — South Lon­don United — no young­sters run around the bimah dur­ing leyn­ing and there is no clap­ping of the bar- or bat­mitz­vah (Com­mu­nity News, De­cem­ber 29).

Why? We have no chil­dren. We have no He­brew classes. There is no like­li­hood of a bar­mitz­vah or a bat­mitz­vah in the next few years un­less some­one moves into the area.

So Bore­ham­wood should count its bless­ings, re­joice that it has bar- and bat­mit­vahs, that chil­dren come to shul and the con­gre­ga­tion is happy. Har­vey Rich, Hoadly Rd, Lon­don SW16
