Odessa files

There was a large turnout at a Kenton, Kingsbury and Wembley adult education programme meeting for an illustrated account of a visit by Kenton Synagogue members to the Tikva children's home in Odessa.

Following contributions from Madeleine Whiteson and Robert Brody, Sharon Arad spoke about some of the children she had met and Michael Topper recalled the appalling living conditions of many of the children's families. David Harris gave some case studies and Jenny Lamski appealed to members to form a fundraising committee.
