Londoner helps Inverness celebrate Succot

JEWS in Inverness joined together for Succot on Monday.

Nine people heard the day's Torah portion read by visiting guest Sassoon Cohen, of London.

Scottish Council of Jewish Communities volunteer ambassador for the Highlands and Islands Linda Martin thanked the hostess, Rhona Hay, who provided home baking, and Mr Cohen, who had supplied food.

The group discussed ways of fostering Jewish life in Inverness, including negotiations with supermarkets to stock more kosher items, an offer to circulate a list of generally-available items which carry a hechsher and bulk ordering of items from kosher suppliers.

Suggestions for future events included the possibility of a joint trip to Israel and short breaks away in a kosher establishment for Shabbat weekends, Chanucah and Pesach.
