Bowling at the Lanes

Bowling-web-large

 

On July 26th the three weeks of mourning for the first and second temples came to a close at 10.06pm. The fast ended and our members with unshaven faces and long grown hair finished the time of remembrance with respect and honour.

But Jewish tradition is known for celebrating life as well, so not twenty four hours later and on what felt like the hottest day of the year, we reunited at the Bloomsbury Bowling Alley for another fun evening of friendly but competitive bowling.

Hawaiian Shirts, white socks with sandles and other suitable attires were all represented including a surprise visit by our very own Rabbi Marcus.

The Rabbi explained his daughter was arriving at the airport soon so he could only stay for a minute, but as we’ve seen with so many others after just one bowl, he returned again and again. Hopefully his daughter wasn’t kept waiting too late.

Special mentions this time go to Sara “Swan Lake” Cohen for her graceful style, Philip “The Giant” Collett for his encouraging words and Michelle Perlmutter for her unique style of rolling the ball without a swing from the ground and still achieving more than one strike!
