BRIGHTON AND Hove He­brew Con­gre­ga­tion held a bazaar in aid of To­rah Academy Nurs­ery. There were stalls, ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren and an Is­raeli style buf­fet. The 100-plus par­tic­i­pants raised £500.

BRIGHTON AND Hove Pro­gres­sive Sy­n­a­gogue’s emer­i­tus pres­i­dent Derek Jay cel­e­brated his 90th birth­day with a spe­cial kid­dush and bless­ing from Rabbi El­iz­a­beth Tik­vah Sarah. A mem­ber of the shul for 60 years, he has served in ev­ery ma­jor ca­pac­ity, and a youth fund has been re­ac­ti­vated in his hon­our, to give grants to younger mem­bers of the sy­n­a­gogue with worth­while projects. Vice-pes­i­dent Pru Baker said: “He is a won­der­ful sup­port and of­fers wise ad­vice.”


SEVEN MEM­BERS of the com­mu­nity took part in a 15-mile spon­sored walk rais­ing more than £2,600 for Southend and West­cliff He­brew Con­gre­ga­tion’s youth club and cheder.
