Bet­ter pre­pared bar­mitz­vah boy

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE OLD­EST male mem­ber of Tik­vah Chadasha (Shen­field, Brent­wood and Dis­tricts Syn­a­gogue) has cel­e­brated his sec­ond bar­mitz­vah — and with greater prepa­ra­tion than for his first.

Bernie Jack­son, 83, was evac­u­ated dur­ing the war, re­turn­ing home at the age of 12 hav­ing never at­tended cheder.

“We are told he rose to the chal­lenge and did his par­ents and sib­lings proud,” said Tik­vah Chadasha’s Jan Feld­man. “This time around, Bernie led the ser­vice beau­ti­fully.”
