The London Beth Din, the Court of the Chief Rabbi, has appointed Joanne Greenaway, an arbitration lawyer with a major City law firm, to the newly created position of Case Worker to assist the Beth Din with managing divorce cases.

Dayan Menachem Gelley, the Rosh Beth Din of the London Beth Din, said:

“Going through a divorce is a very difficult process even in the most amicable of circumstances. I am keen to ensure that couples have as positive an experience as possible. We have a duty to do all we can to help them through the process and, where necessary, to assist them in overcoming differences to achieve the desired outcome. Jo’s appointment strengthens our team and I am delighted to have her on board.”

Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis, commented:

“I am delighted with this development. To appoint someone of Jo’s experience and calibre to support the work of the Beth Din sends a clear signal to our community that the Beth Din is committed to go the extra mile to ensure that divorcing couples are helped and supported through the religious divorce process and that cases are proactively managed. I wish Jo every success in her new role.”

Joanne Greenaway said:

“It is a real honour and privilege to be able to serve the community in this way and to work with David Frei and the Dayanim of the London Beth Din.”
