*In 1972 Rev AD (Aharon Dov) Sufrin was head in Lubavitch House etc whatever it says up there I believe. Not Rabbi Areyah Sufrin

Indeed, as the picture states too, Rev AD Sufrin was Director Education of Lubavitch House School in London for nearly 40 years, until his untimely passing at the age of 67, in 1997.
Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin MBE is his son, who is continuing the legacy of his late father, in North-East London and Essex where his parents moved at the Rebbe’s behest in 1976, and where Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin has been active since 1985.

Names in your report are wrong
It was Reb Aron Dov Sufrin OH Rebbe’s shliach in London and then Director of Education of Lubavitch schools who invited Mrs Thatcher to visit this event not his son Aryeh.
His son Aryeh is current shliach in London Rabbi Aryeh Sufrin

B’h Beautiful story with a beautiful message. As the article so clearly underlines – the Rebbe’s way is always to emphasize the positive. And so too should we emulate the Rebbe and look at and emphasize the positive side of Lady Thatcher: In this particular incident she showed interest, encouragement and by personal example (putting on a modest jacket) – approval of the amazing project which the Chabad girls put together. No amount of lecturing will make you improve your ways as much as a living example does. The Chabad girls did just that, they are a living example! This… Read more »
