Many people bought the products for the Sunday lunch and also to take home for dinner over the coming days. Judaica and Chanukah items and jewelry gifts were on sale.
The event was opened by close friends and supporters David and Debra Clapham who were presented with a Chanukah Menorah.
All food for the event was organized by Sora Jacobs and the event was jointly organized by Rabbi Chaim and Sora Jacobs, Shluchim of Lubavitch in Scotland for over 46 years.
“Hopefully the event will enhance kashrus observance in the community,” said Rabbi Jacobs.
