Scroll-y good

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY NEWS - BY JAY GRENBY

NEARLY 400 peo­ple ac­com­pa­nied Stan­more and Canons Park Sy­n­a­gogue’s first new se­fer To­rah for 25 years on a half-mile pa­rade through lo­cal streets on Sunday.

The scroll was pre­sented in hon­our of the sec­ond bar­mitz­vah of shul life pres­i­dent Ron­nie Met­zger by his wife Sheila and fam­ily. The fi­nal 40 letters of the scroll were com­pleted at the Met­zgers’ home.

There was much im­promptu singing and danc­ing as the scroll was fer­ried to the shul to the strains of a klezmer band.
