Our board of trustees volunteer their time and expertise for BNJC. Our trustees come from all walks of life but are united in a shared vision to help us build a vibrant Jewish community for Brighton & Hove. We will be introducing our team members and additional trustees soon.

Michael Davids

Michael Davids

Michael has over 30 years' experience in financial services and equity markets. Although he retired in 2007, he still has his hands full balancing his role as Chair of Brighton & Hove Jewish Housing Association, trustee of Helping Hands and a member of the Brighton & Hove Holocaust Education Project. Michael was born and raised in Brighton and has a long involvement in the Jewish community. His late father was Chairman of Brighton and Hove Hebrew Congregation (BHHC), and he has served many terms on their board himself.

Michael is very excited about being involved in our innovative and ambitious project to revitalise the community. In his spare time, Michael enjoys theatre, watching sport and spoiling a good walk in the countryside by taking his golf clubs along.

 

Natasha Isaac

Natasha Isaac

Natasha is a Brighton-based barrister working primarily in family law and has extensive experience in Jewish organisations. Aside from her current role as trustee for Jewish Feminist Alliance (JOFA), she has also been involved in the Jewish Museum, Tzedek and Jewish Women’s Aid as well as sitting on her synagogue board. Raised in London, Natasha and her husband have recently moved to Brighton to be nearer their jobs and close family and have enjoyed becoming a part of the local community.

Natasha is excited for BNJC to become a vibrant community hub in Hove and to welcome more young professionals and families to live by the glorious sea. Her favourite thing about Brighton is the relaxed and calming way of life. On the weekend you’ll find her reading a book by the sea (or looking out from inside a warm coffee shop, if it’s cold!).

 

Robert Comer

 Robert Comer 2

Robert started his professional life working for HMRC where he became a tax inspector before leaving in 1989 to join a local accountant firm. He has since gone on to set up his own private practice in Brighton (CCI Chartered Accountants) where he heads up the tax department.

Robert is proud to live in Brighton & Hove and champions the city as a wonderfully eclectic place to live.  "It has the nightlife, restaurants, the coast and the downs with wonderful golf courses and a football team. What more could you wish for!” 

As a trustee for BNJC he hopes that "it regenerates the local Jewish community and in turn creates an environment where the Brighton & Hove community,  irrespective of faith, can meet and learn from each other.”
