STAN­MORE AND Canons Park Synagogue has ap­pointed Benji and Aviva Lan­dau as its new as­sis­tant com­mu­nity rabbi and rebbetzin.

The cou­ple have a back­ground in youth and ed­u­ca­tional work.

Rabbi Lan­dau also holds a busi­ness stud­ies de­gree and his wife a de­gree in his­tory.

His pri­mary re­spon­si­bil­ity will be to sup­port and de­velop ac­tiv­i­ties for youth, stu­dents and young adults. Mrs Lan­dau will work with girls and women in the con­gre­ga­tion, giv­ing shi­urim and ar­rang­ing ed­u­ca­tional op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Stan­more chair Philip Hertz hoped the cou­ple would s t a r t wo r k t h i s month, al­low­ing them time to set­tle in be­fore the High HolyDays. He added that the foot­ball-lov­ing Rabbi Lan­dau was an Arse­nal fan — “but I promised not to hold that against him.”
