Radlett Synagogue has announced a raft of changes in the shul's spiritual and lay leadership following the departure of Rabbi Ariel Abel and the resignation of honorary officers who said they could no longer work with chair Andy Katz.
Members were informed this week that Jeffrey Gruder would assume the vice-chairmanship until new elections at the AGM in May. The two departing wardens would be replaced by a rota of "service co-ordinators", who were already concentrating on arrangements for the High Holy-Days.

The rift in the Radlett Synagogue leadership was put aside as members attended a farewell dinner and kiddush for Rabbi Ariel Abel, who resigned after five years as minister.
More than 120 guests heard tributes to the rabbi from United Synagogue chief executive Jeremy Jacobs and Joel Sager, warden at neighbouring Borehamwood and occasional minister at Radlett.
There was also a contribution from former warden David Glover, one of the Radlett leaders who resigned saying they could no longer work with chairman Andy Katz.

Radlett Synagogue's vice-chair and two wardens have resigned, the wardens saying they can no longer work with chairman Andy Katz.
Critics claim that Mr Katz is "dictatorial" and "intransigent" and does not consult honorary officers or board members over key decisions. Mr Katz insists this is not the case and says he is working to bring the three back into the fold.

A family has complained that their son has been denied a place at the Moriah Jewish Day School nursery in Pinner, Harrow in September because the school miscalculated the distance from their home.
The boy's father, who did not wish to be named, said that other children who lived further away from the school had been placed higher than their son in the queue for 26 places.
