Michael Goldstein to serve second term as United Synagogue president

US leader re-elected unopposed as the movement welcomes Rachel Hartog as a new trustee


Michael Goldstein has been re-elected unopposed for a second four-year term as United Synagogue president.

Others re-elected were treasurer Maxwell Nisner and trustees Fleurise Lewis and Saul Taylor. Claire Lemer steps down after two terms as a trustee.

A new trustee is Rachel Hartog. Ms Hartog grew up in Cricklewood and was a member of Hampstead Synagogue until moving to Stanmore in 1999. She served a total seven years on the council of Stanmore and Canons Park Synagogue, around three as vice-chair. She has also served on the US council for six years.

Professionally, Ms Hartog has pursued a career in IT after studying mechatronic engineering. She was a software lead in a media technology company before going freelance. Since 2014, she has also been the managing director of a property company.

US chief executive Steven Wilson congratulated those re-elected and welcomed Ms Hartog to the trustee board. “We look forward to benefiting from her experience.”
