Reading elects woman president
Reading Hebrew Congregation has elected a woman president for the second time in its history. Sue Clarke, who served for the past year as vice-president, was elected to the post at the synagogue’s AGM. Three years ago Sarah Firsht, who served as joint president with Myer Daniels, was the first woman to hold the post. The other board members elected were: honorary life president Jeff Foreman; vice-presidents Sarah Firsht and Myer Daniels; honorary secretary Janette Sassoon; and Tony Woolf as treasurer.
