Reverend Stewart Myers began at South London Synagogue in April 2017, following Rabbi Grunewald's retirement; he and his wife Lorraine are delighted with their new community and feel they have already settled in and have been made to feel very welcome by our members.

Reverend Stewart Myers has had a long history of being a minister and a Jewish educationalist in synagogues and schools around the world, with extended periods of work in Israel and Australia, as well as in this country.

Born in Stepney and having grown up in Northwest London, he has been a minister in Bradford, a teacher of Jewish Studies at Ilford Jewish Primary School and spent ten years as the Minister at Boundary Road Synagogue (Waltham Forest Hebrew Congregation) where he led the community until the Shul merged with the Wanstead and Woodford Synagogue. He has also been superintendent at Rayners Lane Cemetery.
Reverend Myers was educated at Jews' College in the 1970s and has mixed with the various ministers and rabbonim in United Synagogue. He is keen on cricket and photography.

His wife Lorraine has had a long career in education, spending eighteen years as a teacher of General Studies and latterly Special Educational Needs at Ilford Jewish Primary School where she first encountered Stewart. She has also spent considerable time working with pupils in Drama.
