Stanley’s history at the Synagogue
“I became a member of the Central Synagogue when my family moved into the area 50 years ago. But for a very short interlude when I moved to Wembley, while still retaining my membership, I have lived in the area ever since. As proof, I remember the first years of our membership when our seats for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur were in the Wolfson Hall overflow service, packed out!
“A few years ago I was responsible for security and saw more of the outside than the inside of the Shul. I am an accountant by profession and was a partner in a firm of accountants for nearly 30 years. During that time, I was head of the London audit and accounts department as well as serving on executive and marketing committees. I specialised in media and FCA regulated clients, as well as a number of charities.
“I now do consultancy work and am treasurer on the board of several charities, including a national charity. I am very much into sport. I was fortunate to visit India in March 2011 to see the Cricket World Cup – an experience never to be forgotten.
“Times have changed and it is apparent that there is a return to this area and the Shul. This is due in no small part to our learned Rabbi Barry Marcus and our excellent and renowned Chazan Steven Leas. Both are professional in their work and modern in their outlook. They also couple this with their desire to engage people whoever they are and wherever they are from. I look forward to working with them and with my fellow Board members.”
