May’s activities – the action and the pleasures – were dampened somewhat by the deaths of two prominent personalities in the community.
David Susman in particular stands out, apart from his exemplary business career, as the ‘doyen’, the leading ‘elder statesman’, who from early days served both Israel and the broad Jewish community and its various bodies at the highest level. So much so, that together with this issue a special 4-page feature highlights the esteem in which this man had been held by those who benefited from his wisdom and input.
Hopefully we will be able to have this feature on this website for all to appreciate the depth and breadth of his imprint and legacy.
Another very sad loss was that of Aaron Searll, a man well known and respected both in the field of retail and within the community, as evidenced in the tribute to him which appears within the paper on page 4.
Beyond the sadness, this June issue highlights a tapestry of energetic, enthusiastic and inspirational activity, enjoyed by a range of people, young and old.
