Leon Tax, sad news

posted 30 Jun 2013, 00:02 by Peninnah Pappworth-McAllister

   It is with great sadness that I have to report the death yesterday, Saturday 29th June, of Leon Tax. Our condolences go to his sister Bess Robertson, to all the family and the Blackpool Reform Synagogue community.


   Many of you will recall as I do, a marvellous Shabbat when Leon together with a large contingent of his family joined us for our service.

 There is an article written by Bess about the great honour of Hechaver bestowed recently on Leon by the Movement for Reform Judaism on our website.
