Bristol hears from Raid on Entebbe Commando

Share this article:


In a promising start to their growing social events programming, the Bristol community hosted Major Rami Sherman, an IDF commando who was instrumental in ensuring the success of the historic mission to rescue hostages from Entebbe airport. He spoke captivatingly about his experiences at the event, which was held to mark both Pesach Sheni and Yom Yerushalayim and drew a crowd of all ages, both from within the shul and student communities.

Evaluation from Rabbi Singer:

“The event was an amazing success, making history in Bristol with a full hall that was so quiet you could hear a pin drop! People from across the region came to Bristol Synagogue, made new friends in the community and came away with an increased awareness of the community’s services and programming.”
