Finchley United Synagogue has chosen two co-chairmen to head its management team next year.

The Kinloss synagogue’s board of management role will be shared by Elaine Renshaw and Scott Saunders.

Optometrist, Elaine, who is married with three daughters, has been a Kinloss member for 33 years, and previously served on the Executive of the Association of United Synagogue Women and as a trustee for the United Synagogue.

Scott, a former investment banker, is the founder of March of the Living UK and a trustee of the UK Foundation of Yad Vashem and was chair of the Ohel Leah Synagogue in Hong Kong.

Scott said: “As co-chairs we will bring twice the experience, skills and enthusiasm to the role of chair.”
