Candlelight and glasses of cold sparkling wine greeted the guests at an extremely well attended farewell event on 7 December, as the Durban Jewish community bade farewell to Antony and Marion Arkin.  A queue of dignitaries, including the Israeli Ambassador to South Africa, HE Mr. Lior Keinan, Ms. Reeva Forman, Mr. John Moshal, Mr. Grant Maserow and Ms. Suzanne Edmunds paid tribute to a lifetime of dedication and service to the Durban Jewish community by both Antony and Marion.  Guests enjoyed delicious cocktail snacks, beautifully prepared by Circle Café.

Antony and Marion made aliyah on 11 December and by all accounts are settling well into their new home town of Ra’anana. They are thoroughly enjoying spending time with their grandchildren.
