Since moving to the area in 2013 I’ve played a strong and active role in shaping our community. After attending the range of excellent services at Croxdale Road, I identified an opportunity to involve more people in the Shul, and co-founded the Nitzan Minyan. Since its inception, the Minyan has grown to more than just a shabbat morning service; organising excellent events, Yom Tov services and providing a foundation for new couples to engage with BES. I am proud that through this, new members of the Shul have integrated themselves into the fabric of our community and I have supported them to be involved with volunteer roles, new projects and as members of the Synagogue Council.
Professionally, I am a Management Consultant at Atos Consulting, leading their Digital Workplace practice. I’ve an excellent track record of project and programme management, working on complex and diverse projects across sectors. This ranges from working with the International Olympic Committee to leading the team to build the replacement system for matching and allocating hearts and lungs for NHS Blood and Transplant! I believe that our Shul is entering a really exciting period and I am confident I bring the professional experience and the passion to help lead us during this time. I have already been part of innovative thinking around expanding the Shabbat offer at Croxdale Road and I would relish the opportunity to develop further inspiring and engaging services and activities. We are currently growing the Rabbinic Team, aiming to employee the first Female Community Educator and look to progress the plans to turn the Croxdale Road site into a Community Hub for all of BES. There has been a massive growth in the Jewish population in Borehamwood over the last few years, and I am ready to strengthen the great work and bring new initiatives to develop the community.
