Last week saw the sad passing of Loraine Young z’l who was a key member of The US team. Over three decades she had many roles within The US. Her US career began at St John’s Wood Synagogue where she became the administrator before joining the Head Office team in 2008. After a brief stint at Finchley US (Kinloss), Loraine returned to Head Office where she worked in the Development Department and as the Simcha Executive. Many of you may have spoken to her in this role where she assisted people in making affordable kosher functions so everyone could celebrate.

When asking colleagues about their memories of Loraine they all said how kind she was and how she always wanted to help others. She also possessed that special gift of making everyone she spoke to feel like they were lifelong friends.  Our thoughts go out to her family and we wish them long life.
