This is a picture of the Northcliff Shul (Shabbat) Choir –  we used to have a larger choir for the high holidays. The picture was taken about 1974/5.

Seated: Saul Neutel, Farrel Brenner, Rabbi Louis Reichenberg, Richard Altschuler (Choir Master), Jerome Geben

This picture used to hang in the shul’s cheder / committee room, but when the room was converted into a ‘little shul’ it was redecorated. I don’t know where the pictures were placed. There are other pictures of the various committees of the shul that I would love to have copies of. Louis Neutel, who is in the picture took on the job of ‘secretary of the shul some years ago… haven’t been in touch for ages, if he is still there he would know.
