There’s nothing quite like starting the new year with a bang – or more specifically, a seriously cool barmitzvah party – which is exactly what we were treated to celebrating Shalom’s coming-of-age recently at the Village Hotel, Bury.
But before then, there was the small matter of Shalom’s call-up, which he handled with aplomb at the Vine Street Synagogue, followed by a family portrait session in Broughton Park.
