Ge­of­frey Al­der­man’s view ( Ev­ery Chief Rabbi needs a rich pa­tron, JC Oc­to­ber 9) is very dis­turb­ing.

Any such “rich pa­tron” (for the United Syn­a­gogue) needs to be, firstly, a lay per­son of a high and con­sis­tent stan­dard of Or­tho­dox ob­ser­vance and, se­condly, with no per­sonal agenda to move the United Syn­a­gogue in a di­rec­tion sim­ply con­sis­tent with his own in­cli­na­tions.

Is there such a lay per­son (or per­sons) out there? If so, let him (her, them) step for­ward now, be­fore we are steam­rollered by an in­ap­pro­pri­ate rich pa­tron. Leon Marks Dea­cons Hill Rd, El­stree, Herts
