Meet Borehamwood's new rabbinic family

Peretz and Sorele Goldstein are leading Seed project


Borehamwood has a new rabbinic couple — Peretz and Sorele Goldstein, who have returned to the UK from Boston to head the new centre of educational organisation Seed.

Seed has been active in the Borehamwood community for the past year through its Babies and Bagels and One2One learning programmes. But the arrival of the Goldsteins heralds an expansion of its activities.

“We are delighted to be joining the Borehamwood community, welcoming people to our home and bringing more Jewish family-focused activities to the area,” Rabbi Goldstein said.

“Our first event will be a drumming session on Sunday and we look forward to working with local Jewish schools on new and innovative programmes.”

In Boston, Rabbi Goldstein worked for JPulse, engaging young Jewish professionals through social and educational activities.

National Seed director Rabbi Joey Grunfeld said its family programmes in the Borehamwood area “have been well received over the past 12 months and the appointment of the Goldsteins is an exciting development”.

Seed is jointly funding the project with the JLE, Aish and Olami.
