Mazeltov to Martin Goldberg and thank you too for enabling DHC to enjoy such a marvellous occasion as was last week’s Shabbat service led by Rabbi Dr Borts. (June13th 2015).
A full synagogue included 3 generations of Martin’s family together with his sister Pat and brother-in-law Lou, who had travelled all the way from Dorset to support Martin as he read a study passage, the Torah and haftarah on the occasion of his ‘2nd’ bar-mitzvah 60 years after his original one. Other visitors were DHC cheder teacher Benny Ross and his wife Lynn who had come from Newcastle. DHC Chair, Bess presented Martin with a framed certificate marking the occasion and a book on behalf of the community. Rabbi Borts spoke about Martin’s commitment to continuing Jewish study and his work and support for DHC. The service was followed by a lavish kiddush. Martin thanked everyone for coming and supporting him on his very special day.
