Kingsbury People

Rabbi Hool

As one of the longest serving United Synagogue Rabbis, Rabbi Hool is respected both within the borders of Kingsbury and beyond in the wider Jewish community. He established the first United Synagogue Mikva on our Shul premises. When Project Seed began, it was Rabbi Hool痴 suggestion that they first come to Kingsbury and there are now weekly meetings here and in most United Synagogues. The idea of a de-centralised voluntary Chevra Kadisha was first established in Kingsbury and our Chevra has trained many other Shuls.

Rabbi Hool's last Shabbat as our Rav was on 4th September 2004, when a special Shabbaton was organised.  A tribute dinner took place on Sunday evening March 20th 2005, at which the Rabbi Hool Bursary Foundation was launched.
