Edwin Lucas, co-chair Mosaic Masorti, writes: “Gareth Thomas MP phoned me before Shabbas, to see how things were going at Mosaic Masorti. He was interested to hear about our congregation and how we were coping with not being able to hold our normal services. He asked if he could be of any assistance and asked me to pass on his greetings for a good Shabbas and also a good Passover bearing in mind all the restrictions.
I thanked him for his interest. He then called me back and as a result, he joined the Zoom service for Sam Feldman’s barmitzvah on Shabbat at Mosaic Reform. It was wonderful that in this trying time he could find the time to support our community.
(For your information Gareth also phoned Mark Phillips to check in with the wider Mosaic Community, and we reiterate our thanks to him for thinking of us at this time)
