Holocaust Memorial Day 2013

Rev Cantor David Rome, The Mayor of Lewisham Sir Steve Bullock, together with Lewisham Council spearheaded the Holocaust Memorial Day commemoration at the Catford Broadway Theatre.

The production was watched by a crowded auditorium of over 700 people ending with the heartrending Meir Finkelstein arrangement of Kel Malei Rachamim performed by Rev Cantor David Rome. The production included the Catford and Bromley Synagogue cheder together with more than 10 other local schools directed by theatre producer Mark Curtis. The Pièce de résistance was a performance by a local primary school of the story of Holocaust Survivor and Catford and Bromley Synagogue member Rachel Levy.

Melava Malka 2013

Catford and Bromley United Synagogue hosted one of the largest events the community has ever seen. 

Over 190 people flocked to the synagogue on Saturday 12th January for a traditional British fish and chip Melave Malka to celebrate the lives of Cantor Rome’s much-loved grandparents and leading lights in Anglo-Jewry, Rabbi Judah and Rebbetzin Celia Rockman who led the community for over 40 years. The event was spearheaded by their new Minister Rev Cantor David Rome who entertained guests with lively songs together with his choir and guest speaker Rabbi Yitzchok Sufrin.  

Rev Cantor Rome said: “It’s absolutely wonderful to be leading this thriving community which is returning as one of the Jewels in the United Synagogue”.
