WHAT’S IN A NAME?

The Jewish Chronicle - - Comment&analysis -

I have much sym­pa­thy for Miriam Sha­viv ( How I solved my iden­tity cri­sis, May 23). My sis­ter-in-law and I, both Sally Halon, have been con­fused with each other for the last 30 years since she mar­ried my hus­band’s younger brother.

I had thought that when she and my brother-in-law made aliyah to Ra’anana 24 years ago that this con­fu­sion would cease.

How­ever, I am con­stantly be­ing asked by friends with Is­raeli con­nec­tions why I post so many mes­sages on the Ra’anana mes­sage­boards, and the other Sally was met with some con­fu­sion at Bal­four House in Lon­don on a re­cent visit to ar­range her fa­ther’s im­mi­nent aliyah, when the se­cu­rity guard in­sisted that she works for Manch­ester UJIA.

It is a con­stant source of amuse­ment to us both. Sally Halon (the Bri­tish one) Gatley, Chea­dle, Cheshire SK8
