THANKS FROM COMMUNITY: From left, Glasgow Jewish Representative Council co-president Evy Yedd, Sharon Mail and Glasgow Israel Committee members Pamela Livingston and Shayna Conn

A PRESENTATION was made to Jewish Telegraph Scotland correspondent Sharon Mail as she covered her last event after 13 years with the paper.

At the Yom Ha’atzmaut family barbecue at Newton Mearns Synagogue on Sunday, Glasgow Israel Committee member Pamela Livingston, describing her as a very special lady, presented Sharon with a bouquet.

Glasgow Jewish Representative Council co-president Evy Yedd paid tribute to Sharon’s honesty, integrity and commitment to the community, both in her work for the Jewish Telegraph and for the Rep Council website.

She presented her with a framed word cloud with the dedication: “To a journalist and writer with the highest ethical standards. A huge thank you from the Glasgow Jewish Community.”

Sharon is taking up a position with the Association of Jewish Refugees.

FAMILIAR: Lorne Jackson

Her replacement at the Jewish Telegraph will be a familiar face to older readers.

It’s déjà vu for Lorne Jackson who has returned to the role of Jewish Telegraph Glasgow reporter . . . 24 years after he left the position.

Since then he has gained experience with the Jerusalem Post, Sunday Mercury, Birmingham Post, Daily Record and The Herald, among other newspapers.

He is looking forward to immersing himself once again in local Jewish communal life.
