Following this week’s Board of Deputies elections, the Movement for Reform Judaism congratulates two deputies from Reform communities being elected to leadership posts.
Marie van der Zyl, of West London Synagogue, was re-elected as President of the Board of Deputies for a second term. She is the second woman to take on this role.
David Mendoza-Wolfson, a deputy for the Movement for Reform Judaism and a council member of Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue, has been elected as Vice President of the Board of Deputies. David is one of the youngest deputies elected to a senior post.
Amit Handelsman, Director of Community Partnership at Reform Judaism, said “It is brilliant to see our members be elected to senior posts in the British Jewish community. We appreciate the work that the Board of Deputies undertakes in order to represent all aspects and traditions of Jewish life in this country and we are proud that Reform Jewish voices continue to be heard on the national stage.”
