ELELS notes that Rabbi Danny Rich has taken the personal decision to step down from his role as the Senior Rabbi and Chief Executive of Liberal Judaism.
Danny has always been a friend of ELELS and its predecessor communities. He played an important supporting role in the merger negotiations between the former Woodford and Barkingside (Bet Tikvah) communities. His continued friendship and support of ELELS has been typical of the experience and commitment he has offered Liberal Jewish communities both in the UK and further afield.
Danny’s decision to step down from the end of March means there is time and an opportunity to reflect on all his successes across the wider progressive Jewish movements. ELELS wishes Danny continued success whatever his next venture whilst looking forward to an ongoing and warm friendship with him.
