Meet the Executive

Kevin Feddy

President

Kevin, his wife Stacey and their children joined Holy Law after settling in Prestwich in 2001.

Since then Kevin has served on the executive as honorary secretary, gabbai and vice-president, before becoming president in 2019.

He and Stacey have made lasting friendships through Holy Law and have grown in their Yiddishkeit since joining the shul, as well as making many simchas there. IYH they will be making many more in the future!

Laurence Ingleby

Vice-president

Laurence cares deeply for the shul which his family joined in 1974. He has been a regular attender since 2000 and has taken a full and active role in shul life.

He has served as vice-president previously and was president from 2013-2016, which included the year of the shul’s 150th anniversary celebrations in 2015.

He has rejoined the executive to help Kevin’s work to grow the kehillah and improve the infrastructure of the shul.

Julian Kershner

Warden

Julian and his family joined Holy Law in 2003 and have become more involved in its activities over the years.

He opted to take on the role of warden because he saw it as the best way to give something back.

Having completed an initial three-year stint, Julian is delighted to stay on for another term.

He is very proud and honoured to be serving under Rabbi Chazan, who continues to be a most significant influence in the life of his family.

Benjy Tunkel

Treasurer

Benjy enjoys the warm and welcoming Holy Law community and is honoured to have been asked to serve as treasurer.

Particular highlights for Benjy include learning from the inspirational Rabbi Chazan and the children’s services, which his kids look forward to attending each week.

Benjy regularly leads weekday services at Holy Law, as do other members of the executive.

Jonny Dolties

Honorary Secretary

Jonny and his family moved to Manchester in 2013 and joined Holy Law shortly afterwards.

He and his wife Yocheved are passionate about the shul and its community, and are keen to play a central role in helping Holy Law to grow further.

Jonny studied at yeshivas in Gateshead and Israel, and he and Yocheved previously spent two years as communal directors at a central London shul.

Phil Landes

Honorary Secretary

Phil’s links to Holy Law date back generations – his great-great-grandfather Rabbi Yehudah Leib Kofnas was a founder member and led services and the reading of the Torah.

Phil and his wife Rachel were married at Holy Law by Rabbi Chazan. They love the shul’s atmosphere and appreciate the depth of Torah learning that Rabbi Chazan brings, ably supported by Rabbi Rickman.

Rachel’s parents Stuart and Phyllis Leventhall are long-standing members.
