The Federation of Synagogues this week announced the appointment of Rav Shraga Feivel Zimmerman as its Rov and Av Beis Din. It follows the announcement of the retirement of Rosh Beis Din Dayan Yisroel Yaakov Lichtenstein. Rav Zimmerman met last Sunday with the Federation’s representative council, in addition to its Trustees and some of its rabbonim. This followed a meeting last week with the organisation’s dayonim.
Some 25 Dayonim and Rabbonim attended a practical halocho shiur on the topic of sofrus, presented by the rav of Ilford Federation, Rabbi David Singer. Rabbi Singer is an expert sofer who has trained numerous sofrim and magi’im both in the UK and Eretz Yisroel and is frequently called upon to answer shailos in this area.
