By Robyn Rosen, October 22, 2009

A major north London kosher supermarket has held its official reopening more than a year after a fire destroyed 50 per cent of the building.

Kosher Kingdom in Golders Green celebrated its return to business with live music, clowns, wine-tasting and free refreshments.

Manager David Rokach said the store now stocked hundreds of extra products, including more health and American items. An electrical fault caused the blaze, which was tackled by over 50 firefighters.

Austrian youth meets Shoah survivors

By Robyn Rosen, October 15, 2009

An Austrian student who has spent a year working with Holocaust survivors in Britain says the experience has made “a huge impact” on him.

Philipp Engel, 19, has finished his stint with the London Jewish Cultural Centre's Holocaust and anti-racism education department as part of the Gedenkdienst (servants to memory) scheme.

Run in conjunction with the Austrian Commemorative Service, the scheme sends 20 young Austrians to work for a year at sites related to Holocaust education, as an alternative to compulsory national service.

By Robyn Rosen, October 8, 2009

A music teacher at King Solomon High School has spoken of the “big impression” made on her by X Factor finalist, Stacey Solomon, who this week moved into Golders Green.

Rachel Dickson, who taught Stacey during her music GCSE three years ago, said she was delighted to see Stacey sing one of her exam performance pieces — Somewhere Over the Rainbow — in last week’s programme.

“My first impression of Stacey Solomon was of a chatty, lively girl with a powerful voice and a huge personality,” she said.
