Vice-Chair – Melvin Lawson

 

 

Melvin Lawson is the Vice Chair of the Central Synagogue.  His longstanding involvement with the Central dates back to his childhood.  He works in the property business and in recent years has lent his expertise to many of the major Synagogue building repair projects.  Melvin has also previously served on the Synagogue Council for 7 years.

Melvin’s history at the Synagogue:

“My grandfather first attended the Central Synagogue in the late 1950s and I have early childhood memories of accompanying him. My strong association with the community grew when I married Jacqueline 25 years ago and we became members.  We have since celebrated the Bat Mitzvahs of both our daughters here.

After my father sadly passed away in 2004, my family were pleased to be able to dedicate the newly refurbished Beit Midrash in his name – The Maurice Lawson Beit Midrash.

I am honoured to have been nominated as Vice Chair and delighted to be able to serve alongside my fellow Honorary Officers.
