Trib­ute to can­cer mum

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

A FUND sup­port­ing youth ac­tiv­ity has been launched at North West Sur­rey Syn­a­gogue in mem­ory of pop­u­lar con­gre­gant Gill Schu­man, who died of breast can­cer at the age of 47.

Mrs Schu­man’s 16-year-old son Lau­rence was among the speak­ers at the open­ing Gill’s Fund event, telling the au­di­ence of around 200 peo­ple of the im­por­tance of in­volve­ment in groups such as Re­form Syn­a­gogue Youth. “My ex­pe­ri­ence at RSY has been in­cred­i­ble,” he said. “Every­one de­serves to have the same amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and I am very proud that this fund has been es­tab­lished to help other peo­ple do so.”

The idea for the fund came from NWSS mem­ber Penni Rochman, a close friend of Mrs Schu­man. The launch event raised £2,500.
