Born and brought up in Hackney, London and moved to Manchester in 1979 when my wife Judith began her social work studies. Joined Menorah in 1987 when our eldest daughter was 5 and all three children had their bar and bat mitzvahs at Menorah. Joined the Board eight years ago and worked with the team which developed the new synagogue building. I was delighted to be nominated as Chair. My day work was as a building project manager with housing associations and other charitable bodies where I ran my own practice until December 2014 and still continue with a number of small assignments, some of a voluntary nature.
Menorah is a thriving Jewish community offering a varied range of activities which is why we enjoy being part of it.
