From: Tony Travis, Emeritus Prof. Univ. of Birmingham, Mosaic Member,(the Birmingham Society for Jewish Studies)
"Your work is of enormous importance, and has been an inspiration for developments both in this country and abroad. For long those of us who live and work outside of London, and have envied what Spiro Ark offered there, before realising that you are a model for the rest of us to follow, and create modest offers in adult Jewish education elsewhere, using the 'Spiro formula!'. This rich local element is a tribute to your inspiration, and model, and we honour and thank you for your lead, and send a hearty mazeltov! We wish you good health, much strength, and a continuing rich contribution, as a model to us all-wherever we are!"
