Sophie celebrated her Bat Mitzvah on
31 March 2023 at Radlett United Synagogue
Sophie celebrated her Bat Mitzvah during the Friday evening service, which was a beautiful event. She spoke about her twin, Shoshana, during her d’var torah and lit a candle for her.
A few weeks back, I was asked to read a poem (‘The Little Smuggler’) at the Radlett Synagogue Yom HaShoah event. The evening was organised by Jacques Weisser and Ivor Perl was a speaker. In preparing for reading the poem, I looked at photos from the ghettos and considered how life must have been. I enjoy history, so want to understand how within a few short years, the jews of Europe went from living in harmony with their neighbours to being sent to death camps.
