Harold and his wife Daphne have been members of the Central Synagogue for many years and has served on the Board of Management.  Harold is very well known for his Bridge expertise and runs many Bridge classes, evenings and holidays.

Harold’s history at the Synagogue

“My involvement with Central stemmed from being asked to teach bridge at Central. I decided to give the Shabbat service a try and my wife Daphne and I were so impressed with the friendly welcome we received that we became members.

My “day” job is teaching bridge both from my home and in people’s homes and I also teach at the LJCC and have taught at Kinloss in the past. I also run bridge weekends in the UK and an annual bridge holiday to Eilat. I hope to start a new bridge course at the Central in 2013.

I also swim daily and have taken part in the annual swimathon raising money from sponsorship for the last 20 years and have taken part in 2 triathlons, again raising money for charity. For the last 12 years, I have also delivered radios for the Middlesex Association for the blind.

I have served on the Board of Management and I am honoured that the community has given me the opportunity to serve it as an Honorary Officer.
