Roy Rubinstein  who has lived in Chicago for 40 years was in the UK on a short visit and wanted to see the 'new' shul. He was bar mitzvah in Victoria Rd but  recognised the reading desk and benches in their new home when in the company of his cousin  David and  Susan, he visited  at the end of October. He was pleased to hear that the community thrived and enjoyed especially seeing the photographs which included  relatives and many other people he remembered from his Darlington days. We enjoyed hearing about DHC and Jewish life in Darlington  in days gone by.
