Rabbi Shaw is to leave Stanmore and Canons Park Synagogue after 15 years to join Mizrachi UK as its CEO.

Shaw joined the United Synagogue in 2000, and was a key member of the organisation through his community work, as the founder of Tribe and creator of the 60 Days and 70 Days projects.

He said: “I am, of course, sad to be leaving the United Synagogue. However, joining Mizrachi UK is the perfect next step. I look forward to working closely with The United Synagogue in my new role as we continue to shape the future of the UK Jewish community.”
