Hendon United Synagogue announced this week that their Assistant Rabbi, Yisroel Binstock, will extend his communal work to four days a week. The move follows a successful first two years with the community. Rebbetzen Leanne Binstock, who has made an impact working with the women and children of the community, will also be employed on a part-time basis by Hendon US.
Rabbi Binstock commented: “Hendon US have been so welcoming and it’s been a huge pleasure working with everyone in the community. I’m delighted that our hard-work has been recognised and that we are able to spend more time helping to build an even more engaged and vibrant community.”
Speaking about the announcement, Marc Meyer, Hendon US Chair said: “Rabbi and Rebbetzen Binstock are much appreciated and respected by our community. We’re delighted that they have agreed to step up their involvement with Hendon US and we thank Tribe for allowing Rabbi Binstock to extend his role with us. Their experience in engaging youth will be invaluable as we continue to inspire and educate our younger members.”
Rabbi Ginsbury expressed his pleasure at “the warm personal and professional relationship” he and his wife have already enjoyed with Rabbi and Rebbetzen Binstock. He added how much he looks forward “to everyone in Hendon benefitting from the increased energy and input which the Binstock’s, as a wonderfully talented and engaging young Rabbinic couple, will be able to give to the Community.”
Rabbi Binstock will continue to serve for one day a week as the Tribe Central Rabbi.
David Collins, US Director of Young People and Young Families, added: “We are delighted that Rabbi Binstock will be continuing to work with us whilst at the same time are excited that he and Rebbetzen Binstock will be helping Hendon US build on their successes and help build the future of this wonderful community.”
