The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMUNITY - BY SANDY RASHTY

PAMELA GOLD­SMITH stepped down this week at the Move­ment for Re­form Ju­daism af­ter three years di­rect­ing its com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment projects.

Ms Gold­smith, who has more than 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in pri­vate con­sult­ing, said she “wished to re­turn to a role that I thor­oughly en­joyed — my rea­sons were not fi­nan­cial”.

She added: “I’ve had a com­bi­na­tion of high­lights here, work­ing with stu­dents and help­ing com­mu­ni­ties en­gage our young people in a tran­si­tional time.” Se­nior move­ment rabbi, Laura Jan­nerKlaus­ner, said that New Zealand-born Ms Gold­smith’s re­spon­si­bil­i­ties would now be shared among the lead­er­ship un­til a suc­ces­sor was re­cruited in the au­tumn. A spokesman added: “We shall miss Pam’s ex­per­tise and would par­tic­u­larly pay trib­ute to the out­stand­ing work she has done in strength­en­ing re­la­tion­ships be­tween the move­ment and its con­stituent com­mu­ni­ties and in bring­ing the staff and stu­dents of the Leo Baeck Col­lege closer to the move­ment.”
