During the past 19 years my wife Jo and I, along with our two children Lottie and Ben, have played many active roles as members of BES. I helped run children’s services for a decade, worked with friends to setup and run the Tomkei Shabbat initiative, attend daily Shacharit services and frequently participate in Shiurim and events. Jo has been a board member, on the functions committee and has put together the Shul calendar for several years.
As such, we are highly invested in BES and the community. I feel that the time is right to use both my professional and academic skills, underpinned by my love for Judaism, to make an active contribution to the running of our synagogue. I would like to help create a positive and enriching environment where every member, regardless of background, feels that BES is an important, meaningful and indispensable part of their lives. I was the Vice Chair (BES Wide) and am now the Deputy Chair.
