I copied this old picture from my late Uncle Nat Bharier's collection recently. Your Dad [Jake Wiseman] is in it, along with Nat. The other faces look familiar but I can't identify them. It's a pretty early picture.
[Ed note: Can anyone put names to these faces? I would think it was taken around 1922 or 1923]
The moving videos of the closing of our shul in 1998 brought tears to my eyes ...a once thriving community...all gone! I`m now a member of Newcastle United and I see every month more and more people leaving to move to London and Israel and we have ever more leaving kiddushim on Shabbat.
I only hope and pray that they all help new communities to spring up and thrive elsewhere. Gwen Lamb
