SIMCHAS   22/10/10

Deiter gets animated


KING David High School pupil DEITER COHEN was barmitzvah at Bury Hebrew Congregation on Shabbat.

But his brother LUCAN almost stole the show at the celebrations.

Proposing the royal toast, nine-year-old Lucan asked guests to raise their glasses to the "Queen of Lancaster".

Deiter, the son of BELINDA COHEN, of Whitefield, enjoys building Lego models, computer games and creating animation. A number of his productions are available to watch on YouTube.

Grandparents SANDRA and SAM COHEN welcomed guests from all over the UK to the simcha.

As well as Lucan, Deiter has another brother ELLIOT, 19, and a 20-year-old sister, LEIGH-ANNE.

Avi's the main 'Man


AVI Kleiman held centre stage as he celebrated his barmitzvah at Beth Hamidrash Hagadol Synagogue on Shabbat.

The son of Rabbi and Mrs Jason Kleiman, of Alwoodley, Rafi is a pupil at Yavneh Boys at King David High School, Manchester.

Rafi enjoys drama, football and computer games.

Grandparents Lydia and Melvyn Kleiman, of Leeds, and Gloria and Victor Appleson, of Hull, attended the simcha along with guests from Florida, London, Liverpool, Hull and Exeter.

Josh has two brothers who also attend Yavneh, Josh, 16, and Rafi, 12.
