GOLDIN: UK LINKS
A FRIEND of the Goldin family, based in Britain, said that Hadar and his twin brother had lived in Cambridge twice. Their father, Dr Simha Goldin, is an academic specialising in Jewish studies, and had spent time on sabbatical at Cambridge University. The family were active in Cambridge’s Jewish community, taking roles in synagogue services there. Barry Landy, of the Cambridge Traditional Jewish Congregation, confirmed the family had lived in the city twice. “Hadar was a nice boy. The first time they came he was 12, the second time he was 15; on the second occasion he did his barmitzvah here,” Mr Landy said.
