BY UNAN­I­MOUS vote, Rabbi Aaron Gold­stein is the new chair of Lib­eral Ju­daism’s rab­binic con­fer­ence, at which min­is­ters meet monthly to ex­change views and dis­cuss press­ing is­sues.

The North­wood and Pin­ner Lib­eral min­is­ter suc­ceeds rab­bis Alexan­dra Wright and Richard Ja­cobi, who co-chaired the fo­rum. Rabbi Gold­stein’s father An­drew has also presided over the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Rabbi Gold­stein said he “could not be more ex­cited and en­er­gised” to take on the role. “In part­ner­ship with the board of na­tional of­fi­cers, the rab­binic con­fer­ence drives Lib­eral Ju­daism as a move­ment.

“My vi­sion is that to­gether, we con­tin­u­ally in­no­vate so Lib­eral Ju­daism is at the fore­front of An­gloJewry.”
