Rabbi and Rebbetzen Lebrett said: “We are grateful for the warm welcome extended to our family this past Shabbat. We were deeply touched by the friendship and generosity shown by everybody who made a special effort to join us. We are very excited to get to know the entire community in the near future and we are grateful for the vote of confidence in the vision we have to take this wonderful community to its next stages of development.”

Steven Gurevitz, Chair of Shenley United Synagogue, said: “I am delighted to welcome the Lebretts to Shenley. The community was enthused by Rabbi Lebrett during his trial weekend, and we look forward to working with him and his wife Mimi in the coming months and years to further develop and enrich Jewish life in the village of Shenley.”
