I'm Cousins With The Lord

.... Lord Jonathan Kestenbaum, that is.

Baron Kestenbaum took his seat in the House of Lords following a short introduction ceremony this afternoon, London time.

The introduction ceremony must take place in the Lords Chamber before each new Member is able to take their seat in the House.

During the ceremony, new Members either swear an oath or solemnly affirm their allegiance to the Queen; they also sign an undertaking to abide by the House of Lords Code of Conduct.

It was a great Kiddush Hashem to witness Lord Kestenbaum don his yarmulke before taking his oath.

I hope to post the video as soon as it becomes available.

Here's the video of the meeting

Why do you always have to be so negative about things?

Hey don't you knock on my man BLD, do you have clippings of the blog posted on the fridge? And he thought Jennifer's performance was adorable and he is one of the members of the GWC2D commentors hall of fame, we love his comments so please take it easy on my guy.
