Kingston Synagogue Hosts a “Mirv”-ellous Melave Malka
by Hazel Green
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis paid his first visit to Kingston, Surbiton & District Synagogue, the largest United Synagogue shul in South West London, on Motze Shabbat.
Over 100 synagogue members and guests were welcomed by Kingston’s Rabbi Samuel Landau with a Havdalah ceremony, and drosha including traditional Chasidic stories, before enjoying a three-course dinner organized by the Ladies Guild.
The Chief Rabbi congratulated the shul, saying that they were blessed to have the incredible leadership duo of Rabbi Samuel and Rebbetzen Shoshana Landau, and he enthused about the varied synagogue activities ranging from an impressive Holocaust Memorial Day programme for local schools to interfaith work and myriad of social events.
Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis visited Kingston Synagogue for a Melave Malka on 21 February 2015. A link to a picture album of the occasion is on our Photo Gallery page.
