The combination of music, singing and readings in such a magnificent location was skilfully selected and brilliantly executed by all the contributors.
I know that our Uncle Alfred would have been delighted that his foundation was able to support your event - and I wanted to say how very grateful the guests were for the privilege of attending. I was so pleased that Esther made the impromptu vote of thanks to you and your team.
It was wonderful to be a part of the experience at Durham Cathedral last Saturday - I will always remember the service and how our Aunt Jane’s words - and deeds - were honoured. Hearing the Rabbi singing Kaddish in Durham Cathedral for all the Jews who perished in the holocaust is something I will always treasure.
Thank you so much for making it happen.
