Board Chief Executive meets Chief Rabbi

This week Board Chief Executive Gillian Merron met with Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, to discuss a range of issues affecting the Jewish Community, including education and interfaith work. Chief Rabbi Mirvis was presented with the first published copy of the newly launched General Election 2015 Jewish Manifesto, which includes issues of vital importance to the community, such as Antisemitism and Religious Freedoms. Ms Merron said: “It was a pleasure to meet Chief Rabbi Mirvis to discuss ways in which the Office of the Chief Rabbi and the Board can work together to help drive positive changes for the UK Jewish community.”

The Board’s Chief Executive was also delighted to meet with Rabbi Pinter, Principal of Yesoday Hatorah Girls School in Stamford Hill. Discussing areas of community interest such as Religious Education, the two community leaders explored ways in which efforts to lobby on behalf of the Jewish Community can be combined. The Board’s Chief Executive also had the pleasure of meeting Ita Symons – CEO of the Agudas Israel Housing Association – and residents and guests at the official opening of the spa facility at Agudas’ Schonfeld Square care facility. Ms Merron said, “My thanks to the community leaders of Stamford Hill for providing an invaluable and enjoyable day. It was a real pleasure to be welcomed so warmly.”
