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
