US rabbi to de­part

The Jewish Chronicle - - Com­mu­nity News - JC RE­PORTER WOOD­SIDE PARK

RABBI HER­SCHEL Rader has an­nounced that he is to leave the pul­pit of Wood­side Park Sy­n­a­gogue in 2008.

The pop­u­lar Il­ford-born Lubav­itcher will have served the North-West Lon­don com­mu­nity for 14 years when he de­parts to pur­sue other chal­lenges.

Simon Ster­ling, the chair­man of Wood­side Park, com­mented: “Rabbi Rader has made an in­cred­i­ble con­tri­bu­tion to our com­mu­nity and we have been most for­tu­nate to have been able to benefit from his guid­ance over the last 13 years. De­spite his de­par­ture, our com­mu­nity will go from strength to strength as a re­sult of his di­rec­tion.

“Rabbi Rader will be greatly missed by the whole com­mu­nity and we wish him well in his fu­ture en­deav­ours,” added Mr Ster­ling.

Rabbi Rader com­mented: “I feel im­mensely priv­i­leged to have been part of the Wood­side Park com­mu­nity for so many years. I have re­ceived in­cred­i­ble support from our mem­bers and whilst I am look­ing for­ward to new chal­lenges, I will miss the vi­brant at­mos­phere and valu­able friend­ships I have forged over the last 13 years.”
