Rabbi Malcolm Cohen, 35, is leaving the West London Synagogue to take up a post next month with the Temple Sinai congregation in Summerlin, 25 minutes by car from the centre of the world’s gaming capital.

“I got the offer in April and decided it was a fantastic opportunity to be able to develop a community there,” he said.

Jewish Care rolled with the punches in London’s Mayfair — and came out on top by £50,000.

A gentleman’s boxing dinner organised by the charity’s Next Generation committee attracted a boisterous 180-capacity crowd to the Millennium Hotel.

Jewish Care’s £3.6m dinner

By Leon Symons, June 25, 2009

A star attraction in Conservative leader David Cameron helped Jewish Care to raise a record £3.6 million from its annual dinner at Grosvenor House in London’s Mayfair on Monday night.

The total raised by the 1,150 guests outstripped last year’s proceeds by £100,000, to the delight of campaign chairman Steven Lewis. “The ability of our supporters to be so generous in recognising how vital our work is, in what is clearly a very tough year, was truly outstanding,” he said.
