The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY LIANNE KOLIRIN Nine Love Letters. JC

MU­SI­CIANS, SINGERS, au­thors and artists will be drop­ping into Alyth Re­form next week for the Gold­ers Green sy­n­a­gogue’s first arts fes­ti­val.

High­lights in­clude recitals from cel­list Raphael Lang and pi­anist Robyn Koh and an au­thor’s talk by literary editor Ger­ald Ja­cobs about his new novel A craft fair, salsa lessons and a V&A pri­vate ar­chive tour are among other at­trac­tions.

Alyth Arts Week has been or­gan­ised by Vivi­enne Bel­los, the sy­n­a­gogue’s for­mer mu­si­cal di­rec­tor. She said she had been in­spired by the an­nual proms at St Jude’s, a nearby church.

“Both our con­gre­ga­tion and the lo­cal com­mu­nity love cul­ture so we are cel­e­brat­ing this with a packed week of ac­tiv­i­ties.”
