As the United Synagogue continues the hunt to find a new full time chief executive to fill the post being vacated by Rabbi Saul Zneimer next month, an interim chief executive has been drafted in.
Stuart Taylor, 53, a former vice-president of the organisation, will help the United Synagogue in its day to day operations while the selection process for a permanent chief executive continues.
Taylor, who is also a judge for the Asylum & Immigration Tribunal and Pensions Appeal Tribunals says he knows "the United Synagogue well" and is "looking forward to steering it during this interim period".
United Synagogue president Simon Hochhauser revealed that Taylor's appointment will help smooth the process to find a new chief executive. "We are now commencing our interviews with candidates for the permanent role and Stuarts appointment will allow us to continue the search process in a very orderly manner," he said.
"We are delighted that Stuart has agreed to take on the role of interim chief executive, "Hochhauser added. "Stuart's professional skills combined with his extensive communal experience will ensure that the business of the US continues on an even keel during this transitional period."
