The Brit Milah
of the first grandson of Rabbi Dr Abraham and Estelle Levy,
the son of Julian and Sian Isaac, was celebrated last February
at the Lauderdale Synagogue to a gathering of over 200 guests.
On that occasion the Chair of Elijah which was donated by
the Smouha family was first used.
After the service
and ceremony, a lavish breakfast was offered in the Montefiori
Hall. Guests were presented with a copy of an English translation
of a monograph on Benedictions by Rabbi Isaac Levy of Gibraltar
which contains a genealogy of the Levy family going back
to the year 1640.
We learn from
the interesting chapters of this beautifully produced little
book that Grace after Meals can be said in any language.
