Belmont United is latest synagogue to elect a woman chair

    The United Synagogue has elected its fourth shul chairwoman

    Frances Grossman, a former vice-chair, was voted in as chair of Belmont United Synagogue in Stanmore on Wednesday night.

    Ms Grossman, who stood unopposed, said: “I'm delighted to have been elected as the first female chair of Belmont and send congratulations to all ladies who have been elected to this position in their shuls."

    Karen Appleby was elected as the first woman chairperson last Sunday. She was elected unanimously and unopposed at St Albans Synagogue’s annual general meeting.

    Ros Goulden was elected at Cockfosters and North Southgate earlier this week.

    Hilary Stone became chairwoman of Staines - an affiliated United Synagogue.
