Young mem­bers visit Poland

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

KINGSTON SYN­A­GOGUE min­is­ter Rabbi David Ma­son led a 20-strong group of younger mem­bers and their fam­i­lies on a two-day trip to Poland.

The itin­er­ary in­cluded a tour of the Auschwitz/Birke­nau death camp site, where the rabbi con­ducted a me­mo­rial ser­vice for vic­tims of the Holo­caust.

Rabbi Ma­son — whose wife is Pol­ish- born — said the pos­i­tive feed­back from par­tic­i­pants “made me re­alise the im­por­tance of such vis­its in con­tribut­ing to the deep­en­ing of Jewish iden­tity and the abil­ity to tell the Jewish story”.
