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. I have been Shul Warden for many years, past Presiding Warden, served as a Trustee on Board previously,  and had  the honour of being Chatan Torah in 1994. I am one of the longest serving current members of our Chevrah Kadisha. I was invited to become a  Trustee again and 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 four  grandchildren all in Leeds and I enjoy nothing more than a BBQ with family and friends, travel to far away places, riding my motorbike in the Dales  and trying to keep busy with volunteering work !
