Rabbi Dr Andrew Goldstein Elected President of Liberal Judaism
Belated congratulations to our Branch President, Rabbi Dr Andrew Goldstein of Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue, elected President of Liberal Judaism in July this year as sucessor to Baroness Rabbi Julia Neuberger, who stepped down from the post to take on a new role at West London Synagogue.
In a report on the movement's website, Liberal Judaism's chief executive, Rabbi Danny Rich, said,
Rabbi Dr Andrew Goldstein is one of the most successful congregational rabbis in Liberal Jewish history. He was the founding rabbi of Northwood & Pinner Liberal Synagogue, serving it for more than 40 years. Assisted by his wife Sharon, the community has grown to be the second largest and one of the most innovative in our movement. By personal example and professional leadership Rabbi Dr Andrew Goldstein has modelled the 'thoughtful Liberal Jew', and I have no doubt he is the best candidate we might have found to fill the post of Liberal Judaism's president.
Similar sentiments were expressed by Liberal Judaism chairman, Lucian J. Hudson:
We elected Rabbi Dr Andrew Goldstein as president with acclamation. Rabbi Dr Andrew lives and breathes Liberal Judaism, and is an inspiration to us all. He sees the big picture and how our movement can contribute to the growth of Progressive Judaism in the UK and internationally.
