The Trustees of the London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS) are delighted to announce that after an extensive and thorough search, they have appointed Joanne Greenaway as the new Chief Executive.

Joanne will be joining from the United Synagogue where she is Get Case Director within the London Beth Din, focussing on difficult cases of Get refusal, as well as the Deputy Legal Director of the US. Joanne is a rising star in the Jewish community, having graduated from the Chief Rabbi’s Ma’ayan programme, the JLC Gamechangers Senior Leadership programme and the LSJS Susi Bradfield Educational Leadership programme. She is a consultant for ‘Educating for Impact’, a new pan-European initiative in Jewish education. She is also a Trustee of the new Multi Academy Trust for Jewish Schools and a Trustee of Kisharon. 

Dean of LSJS, Rabbi Dr Raphael Zarum said he was “excited by this announcement” and was “really looking forward to working with Jo.” He said, “Jo is a leading light of our community and is sure to invigorate the leadership of LSJS.” 

Chair of the LSJS Trustees, Gary Phillips said, “The Trustees are very confident that Jo will be a tremendous Chief Executive and we look forward to seeing the continued impactful work of LSJS, developing teachers and educators for our community.”

The Chief Rabbi said “Jo is one of the one of the outstanding and effective leaders of our community. Her work at the London Beth Din has changed many lives for the better. Through her participation in the Ma’ayan Programme, I saw for myself her love of learning and enthusiasm for imparting the wisdom of Torah to others. LSJS is truly blessed.” 

Joanne said, “Having been involved with LSJS for many years already as both a student and a teacher, I am delighted to be joining as Chief Executive to lead the unfolding strategic direction of the organisation. LSJS is one of Anglo Jewry’s most important institutions with a great history of teaching Torah and developing world class educators and leaders. I am passionate about strengthening Jewish education and I look forward to working with my new colleagues over the coming years, with the guidance of the Chief Rabbi as LSJS’s President, to ensure our communities and schools are equipped with the best teachers and educators possible.”

Joanne will take up her position at LSJS in January 2019, until then Rabbi Yaacov Finn is Interim Chief Executive.
