Stanley Dyne - Vice President

Peter Vickers - Treasurer

We joined the shul in 1980 when we moved to Roseville. Leonie and I have 3 daughters and 8 grandchildren and when the whole family attends shul the noise level goes up.

I joined the board as Treasurer about 12 years ago and also served 2 years as president. My accounting practice is at the end of the shul exit drive and my shul attendance is broken when I go skiing both in Australia and oversea. My sculptures of Rabbi Aviv and the giant matzah have appeared occasionally at shul on Pesach.

I retired a few years ago after a career in engineering and IT. I have been assisting the Synagogue office staff with their information systems for a number of years and am active with the Connections program. I am a volunteer with Jewish Care and also enjoy assisting the elderly in the wider community with their use of computers through the Computer Pals for Seniors organisation. My wife Melanie and I are fortunate to have 3 young grandchildren with whom we love to spend whatever time they can spare us.

Robert Samuel

I joined the Board after more than a decade advising for-impact and faith based organisations on responding to changes in markets, community expectations,  regulation and technology.   I have participated in the life and work of North Shore Synagogue since childhood.  I am enjoying working with the people of the North Shore, our Community, Board and leaders of the Congregation as we reimagine a home for a welcoming and meaningful Jewish life in and around the North Shore of Sydney.
