Gerald and Margaret
Oh dear, straightaway, the divide in Anglo Jewry about who is a Jew is coming to the fore. Just so irrelevant to Lizzie at this point.
Veronika, at least give accurate information. The address of the London Beth Din is:- 305 Ballards Lane, North Finchley N12 8GB, London, UK. The phone no is 020 8343 6270. Who should she talk to , in which Dept? Not everyone would show empathy to someone who has been left in turmoil for the past week. by such a revelation. Also, you were saying something very supportive, but by using Yiddish words, Lizzie is unlikely to know what they mean. Lizzie, Veronica has wished you 'Good Luck' and 'Blessing'
Lizzie, I hope you can keep calm and follow up what you want . Norwood is a good starting point, as that organisation has always been involved with Jewish children. Its name has changed over the years.
Finchley, London, UK
