Chava Fleming

I was inspired by some wonderful Jewish neighbours. My stepson Benjamin’s barmitzvah and my marriage to his father were on the same weekend; the entire community was invited to both. The sense of family, and commitment to it, is uppermost.

Chava Fleming was born in New Zealand, lives in Newcastle and is married to the chair of Newcastle Reform Synagogue. She is currently writing a book on experiences of converting to Judaism.
