Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has commented on the sad news of the passing of Rabbi Avrohom Pinter:

“Rabbi Pinter was a much loved figure across the community, building bridges between different groups of Jews, Government & wider UK society. He was always wise and often humorous. I considered him a mentor and friend. He will be deeply missed by all of us who had the privilege to know him. My sincere condolences to Rabbi Pinter’s whole family. Their loss as a family is our loss as a community.”
