Rabbi's son celebrates his barmitzvah

SHLOMIE RUBIN joined the adult community of Giffnock Synagogue last week.

The shul hosted the barmitzvah of Shlomie, the middle son of minister Rabbi Moshe Rubin and wife Hadassa.

A large crowd turned up to watch Shlomie being called up for his first aliya.

After the service, there was a special breakfast.

Shlomie has been attending all the services for the last four years.

He has been a regular at the Netherlee and Clarkston Table Tennis Club, which meets in the shul hall.
