The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

NEARLY a year af­ter tak­ing of­fice, Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis has at last moved into his new home in Hen­don.

He upped sticks from nearby Finch­ley af­ter the builders put the fin­ish­ing touches to the house, whose ad­dress I shall not re­veal in or­der to spare the Com­mu­nity Se­cu­rity Trust a col­lec­tive coro­nary.

There are still some people who are yet to be rec­on­ciled to the idea that, af­ter more than a hun­dred years, the chief rabbi’s of­fi­cial res­i­dence is no longer in swish St John’s Wood, which is closer to Lords, if not the Lord.

But the new lo­ca­tion will make it eas­ier for him to pick up bagels from among the area’s nu­mer­ous kosher bak­eries.
