CLOSE ON 500 young pro­fes­sion­als cel­e­brated Sim­chat To­rah at the Saatchi Syn­a­gogue in St John’s Wood, en­joy­ing an open bar and tuck­ing into Is­raeli re­fresh­ments. The shul’s Rabbi Men­del Co­hen said it was im­por­tant that the young con- nected to fes­ti­vals be­yond Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kip­pur. “A so­cial and in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence” made the event more ap­peal­ing. Two cou­ples were mar­ried by Rabbi Co­hen last year af­ter meet­ing at a Saatchi Sim­chat To­rah party.
