Beth Din names lawyer


An arbitration lawyer with a leading City of London firm has been appointed to a new position at the London Beth Din to help manage divorce cases.

Joanne Greenaway will take up the role of case worker at the Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis's rabbinic court, which deals with 110 to 120 divorce cases annually.

Rabbi Mirvis said that to appoint "someone of Jo's experience and calibre to support the Beth Din's work sends a clear signal to our community that the Beth Din is committed to ensuring that divorcing couples are helped through the religious divorce process and that cases are proactively managed".

London Beth Din head Dayan Menachem Gelley said that "going through a divorce is a very difficult process even in the most amicable of circumstances. I am keen to ensure that couples have as positive an experience as possible. Jo's appointment strengthens our team and I am delighted to have her on board."

Mrs Greenaway is a member of the Jewish Leadership Council's Gamechangers programme for young Jewish leaders and has been studying on the Susi Bradfield educational leadership scheme at the London School of Jewish Studies.

She said: "It is a real honour and privilege to be able to serve the community in this way."
