MEMBERS of the community got in the mood for yomtov at an event held in Ayr on Sunday.

Around 50 people, the majority of them children, attended a Family Festival Experience, organised by Enjoy and the Scottish Council of Jewish Communities, at Rozelle House.

A bus took most of the participants from Giffnock Synagogue to Ayr.

Mysterious Minds duo Jennifer Ziva Lauxman McCorkell and husband Scott entertained with magic and mind mentalism, before Norrie Zinger, assisted by some of the children, gave a demonstration on shofar making.

The youngsters got the chance to show off their shofar-blowing skills, though none could compete with the impressive marathon performance by event organiser, youth and community minister Rabbi Eli Wolfson.

Ayr and District Beekeepers Association executive member Tony Riome showed a film before introducing some bees to the audience, who enjoyed sampling honey.

Time was made to view the Cultural Connections exhibition of Jewish art and photography currently on display at the Maclaurin Galleries.

There was a special celebrity appearance from two local rams who proved to be a great hit, though they were kept at a safe distance from the admiring audience.

The group was welcomed to Rozelle House by Maclaurin Trust chairman John Walker and curator Diane Gardner.
