Melbourne Beth Din appoints new Registrar

י"ד אב ה' אלפים תשס"ט

The Melbourne Beth Din has recently appointed Ari Morris as its new Registrar, replacing the outgoing Registrar, Rabbi Edward Belfer. The appointment was made by the Board of Melbourne Beth Din Nominees Ltd with the approval of the Executive Committee of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria.

With a background in law and community work, Mr Morris brings an array of experience and talent to the position. His demonstrated commitment to the Jewish community coupled with his successful involvement in private enterprise has equipped him with the knowledge and skills to further enhance the important work carried out by the Melbourne Beth Din (MBD).

Mr Morris looks forward to working with the board and dayanim of the MBD on expanding the role of the Beth Din and modernising its facilities. He is particularly keen to enhance the efficiency of the MBD’s operations so as to provide the best possible service to the Victorian Jewish Community.

Mr Romy Leibler, President of Melbourne Beth Din Nominees Ltd, in welcoming Mr Morris to the position stated that “we are delighted with Ari’s appointment. We have a number of exciting proposals for the growth of the MBD planned for the year ahead and we look forward to working with Ari to advance the MBD’s objectives”.

Mr Leibler also thanked the outgoing Registrar, Rabbi Belfer, for his “excellent service over recent years. We wish him and his family much success in their future endeavours and send them our sincerest blessings”, he said.

Mr Morris is also currently the Executive Director of the Rabbinical Council of Victoria. He previously worked as a solicitor and as Executive Officer at the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation Commission. He spent fourteen months studying at Ohr Somayach in Jerusalem in 2007 and is married with one child.
