Teacher takes key UJIA role

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

LAU­RIE ROSENBERG, the head of Si­mon Marks Pri­mary School in Stoke New­ing­ton, North Lon­don, for the past six years, has been ap­pointed to the key post of fundraiser for ma­jor donors at UJIA.

Mr Rosenberg is the latest of a num­ber of re­cruits to the char­ity from the Jewish ed­u­ca­tion sec­tor.

Al­ready within the UJIA fold are Alis­tair Falk, for­mer head of King Solomon High School in Bark­ing­side and Green­wich Academy, now di­rec­tor of ed­u­ca­tional lead­er­ship; and Helena Miller, who was in charge of adult ed­u­ca­tion in the Re­form move­ment at Leo Baeck Col­lege. She is now UJIA’s di­rec­tor of re­search and ed­u­ca­tion.

They will be joined by a fourth ed­u­ca­tion­al­ist, Elaine Robin­son, who has been de­vel­op­ing a so­cial-ac­tion pro­gramme at Im­manuel Col­lege in Bushey, Hert­ford­shire.

UJIA chief ex­ec­u­tive Doug Krik­ler said: “UJIA is very pleased that se­nior fig­ures from ed­u­ca­tion feel con­fi­dent that they can con­tinue to de­velop their ca­reers and the ed­u­ca­tional fu­ture of the com­mu­nity with us. But we didn’t set out ac­tively to re­cruit peo­ple from the Jewish school net­work.

“Our gen­eral strat­egy is to con­tinue the process of de­vel­op­ing a cen­tral agency for the com­mu­nity that can pro­duce an ed­u­ca­tional pro­gramme of the high­est cal­i­bre with the great­est im­pact. ”

Mr Rosenberg said: “I have had six won­der­ful years at Si­mon Marks but this was too good an op­por­tu­nity to miss. It might seem like a move out of ed­u­ca­tion but re­ally it is not, be­cause of UJIA’s heavy in­volve­ment in the sub­ject across the com­mu­nity.”

Mr Rosenberg, whose wife Lena is head of Clore Tikva in Bark­ing­side, will be tak­ing up his new post af­ter Pe­sach next year.
