60 people attended a Scottish traditional Burns Supper run by Lubavitch-L’Chaim’s Restaurant and held at the Glasgow Maccabi Function Suite.
Due to high demand it had to move from the restaurant to larger premises.
A Burns supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns, author of many Scots poems. The suppers are normally held on or near the poet’s birthday, 25 January, sometimes also known as Robert Burns Day.
Guest speakers were Chairman Steven Kayne who made the toast to the memory and the toast to the Lassies.
David Clapham recited all of Tam o’ Shanter and made the toast to the Haggis. Reply to the toast to the Lassies was given by Debra Clapham.
Both Steven and David kept the audience entertained throughout the evening with their humor and jokes.
The Selkirk Grace and grace after meals was recited by Rabbi Chaim Jacobs and the Haggis was piped in by a local piper. The poem Willie Wastle was recited by Paul Tolley.
The entire event was planned and organized by restaurant manager and co Director of Lubavitch Scotland Mrs. Sora Jacobs.
Special thanks are due to Steven Kayne and David Clapham for the numerous hours of work put into planning and preparing for this very successful social event.
