Yesterday evening our team of Blake and Elicea were truly privileged to photograph the Tribe Continuity Dinner for the United Synagogue, hosted at the ever-popular Kinloss in north London. Tribe is the youth arm of the United Synagogue, built on authentic Jewish Values of living, learning and caring – believing that all young Jews irrespective of their observance should be inspired about their Judaism and Israel, whilst aiming to create a bright future for the Jewish community.
The guest speaker for the evening was Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, we are privileged that this is the 3rd time we’ve had the honour of his company this week. The Chief Rabbi spoke, as ever from the head and the heart but without notes, about the importance of leadership and community. He praised all levels of leadership within the United Synagogue – professional, honorary and voluntary. Entertainment for the evening came in the shape of Dudu Fisher ‘The Voice of Broadway’, who went from being the Cantor of the Great Synagogue of Tel Aviv to Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. He performed beautiful and stirring songs for an appreciative audience.
A wonderful meal was created especially for the evening by Food Story, providing a modern and creative take on traditional Jewish dishes. Thank you to Head Chef David Swann for allowing us in the kitchens during preparations, and indeed for ensuring our team were looked after on the evening. This magnificent event was held together by Jamie Paskin, better known as JP Toastmaster, a man who makes event flow seamlessly whilst ensuring that all the professionals involved behind the scenes know exactly where they need to be, and when.
Thank you to the entire team at United Synagogue including Alan, Ariel, Danielle, David, Jonny and Naomi for bringing us in to share in this special event, we truly felt as though we were among friends in such a warm atmosphere.
