         Cathy Burnstone I joined FPS three years ago as I was looking for a local, friendly and dynamic liberal synagogue.  I have been warmly welcomed, together with Carmen, my wife who has subsequently joined and we've been encouraged and supported to participate fully on joining, particularly in social action which FPS is engaged in.  Recently retired from my day job in Children's Social Work management; FPS matters, together with my business and some leisure activities occupy plenty of my time. I'm honoured to be the chair and hope to consolidate and progress the vision and ideas of Alex, the previous chair together with a strong and able council.  I would be very interested to know members' views about FPS and look forward to discussing these. chair@fps.org

          Paul Silver-Myer My parents married and moved to Finchley shortly after FPS was established meaning this has been the only synagogue I have been a member of. I therefore feel strong links with its history and founders, yet have experienced profound changes in the way [Liberal] Judaism has evolved over the last half century and how FPS has, and is, embracing those changes. My role as Vice-Chair is to support Cathy in her vision and drive to continue to make FPS an important part of our members' Jewish lives. vicechair@fps.org
