Rabbi Yisroel Fine
Rabbi Yisroel Fine was born in Swansea in 1948, and grew up in Merthyr Tydfil where his late father was the Minister. He received his early education there and was also Bar Mitzvah there before moving with his family to Cardiff in 1961. He studied in Gateshead Yeshiva for 5 years and received Semicha in 1972.
The following year he married Judy Weissbraun from Stamford Hill, and they commenced married life in Israel, where Rabbi Fine spent a year of study at the Mir Yeshiva in Jerusalem. That year was a very fruitful one because, in addition to gaining a valuable acquaintance with the great rabbinical authorities, he gained deep understanding of modern Israel society at a pivotal time for the country as it became engulfed in the struggles of the Yom Kippur war.
He then returned to England where he took up the position of Minister to the United Hebrew Congregation of Newcastle-Upon Tyne. Rabbi Fine spent 7 enjoyable years there until the end of 1981. In January 1982, he came to London as the Rabbi for the Wembley community which he served until the end of 1986.
In January 1987 he joined the Cockfosters & N. Southgate Synagogue as the Rabbi and has served in that capacity for over 25 years.
