Trustees, Susie Kahn, Nathaniel Meyohas, Daniel Naftalin and Orly Wolfson will continue to support the organisation.
Andrew Wolfson commented:
“I am delighted to have been asked to take on the role of Chair of Beit Halochem UK. I look forward to continuing this important work with my fellow trustees and Spencer Gelding, the charity’s Executive Director. I would like to thank Dennis and Neville for the work they have done for the charity.”
Beit Halochem UK was established in 2012 by Dennis Levine with fellow trustee Daniel Naftalin. Dennis saw the need to create awareness of and to raise money for the essential work carried out by the Beit Halochem Centres in Israel – an organisation very close to his heart.
