We gathered in Catford, South East London, and waited for Efrayim to arrive. Everybody truly excited! Great atmosphere!
Efrayim himself was in "flames", very excited and happy to be there. And the Jewish community was very proud of him today.
Efrayim is 22 years old and already a hero in his Chassidic community. Since he was 16 he has opened and worked on seven charities, including the London Shomrim and has over 300 volunteering members. Efrayim also runs a soup kitchen for the poor and homeless. We at the JDL are really proud of him and are delighted that he has carried the Olympic torch today, in memory of the 11 Israelis who were massacred in the Munich Olympics in 1972!

This is Lori on the left. We were staying opposite her house, so she came out with some tea, coffee and hot chocolate for us. Really sweet American lady. The gentleman on the left joined her to help offer us the lovely hot beverages.
Efrayim's friends. These two lovely girls were there supporting him all the way. His fan base seems to be doing pretty well.
This day was dedicated to the memory of the 11 Israeli athletes who were murdered in cold blood, by the Palestinian terrorists in Munich 1972.
