Building Trustee (Board)

My family and I joined Sinai when we moved to Leeds in 1987. Sinai made us very welcome and enabled us to connect with the Leeds community. Over the years we have celebrated all life cycle events including the barmitzvahs and weddings of our sons at Sinai.

Previously I was a Shul Warden for many years, past Presiding Warden, Council member and the honour of being Chatan Torah in 1994. I am one of the longest serving current members of our Chevrah Kadisha. I was recently invited to become a Warden once again earlier this year and to stand for the Board, which I accepted, and I am enjoying serving the synagogue in a positive way once again.

I am hoping that my past business experience as a Strategic Business Manager both in the UK and Export Markets will help add weight to the existing skills that other board members have, to take our vision further well into the future.

Rita and I have three grandchildren all in Leeds and I enjoy nothing more than a BBQ with family and friends, travel to far away places, and trying to keep up my gym membership!
