Liberals in reshuffle

Rabbi Danny Rich has been awarded a new five year contract as the chief executive of Liberal Judaism.

Leaders of the movement have also reorganised the management team at the Montagu Centre, its central London HQ, in order to allow Rabbi Rich - who took office in 2005 - more time for writing and public speaking.

Lucian Hudson, Liberal Judaism chairman, said: "Danny Rich is an exceptional leader who is held in high regard and with much affection. We are delighted to renew his contract."

Shelley Shocolinksy-Dwyer steps up to become operations director, while Rabbi Rich's former PA Yael Shotts returns from maternity leave to be services manager.

Mr Hudson envisaged Rabbi Rich having a "more outward role, including overseeing our expanding links with Israel".
