Rabbi Neil Kraft, who spent 17 years leading the Edgware and Hendon Reform passed away this week. He had been due to retire in a matter of weeks.

His son Elie wrote: “Despite the NHS doing an amazing job trying to have him, he unfortunately didn’t make it. I don’t really know what to say other than my family and I are completely devastated. Not only did he mean a lot to us. He also meant a lot to the wider Jewish community.”
