Glouces­ter opener

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY LIFE -

TWENTY-THREE PEO­PLE at­tended the in­au­gu­ral ser­vice of the Glouces­ter­shire Lib­eral Jewish Com­mu­nity, held last Fri­day at the Chel­tenham home of David and Sue Nay­dorf.

The ser­vice was con­ducted by Lib­eral Ju­daism out­reach di­rec­tor Rabbi Aaron Gold­stein and the fledgeling com­mu­nity re­ports “ex­cel­lent feed­back”. An­other ser­vice is planned for tonight with a gar­den party next month.

Rabbi Gold­stein said the turnout at the first ser­vice demon­strated the po­ten­tial for a Lib­eral con­gre­ga­tion in the area. “There was an in­cred­i­ble buzz. Some of those present had oc­ca­sion­ally at­tended Chel­tenham He­brew Con­gre­ga­tion. Oth­ers had not been to a ser­vice for some time.”
