Seven Reasons to Celebrate at Hadley Wood

Last weekend, the Hadley Wood Jewish Community had the highly unusual opportunity of celebrating the birth of seven babies on a single Shabbat.

In addition to the naming of three baby girls (including a set of twins) born to two young families - both mothers being children of one of Hadley Wood’s longest standing members, the Taylor family, we also celebrated the birth of another set of twins and a baby boy born to other members’ children this week. Finally, we had the privilege of celebrating the recent birth of a baby boy to a young family staying with relatives in the local area due to our proximity to Barnet Hospital.

All in – including call-ups for grandfathers and fathers - we sang mazel tov after almost every aliyah. Truly a reason to celebrate!
