Councillor Ray Morgon, Leader of Havering Council, pays tribute to Romford Rabbi, Lee Sunderland.

“I was very saddened to hear about the death of Romford Rabbi, Lee Sunderland.

"Although I only knew him well for the two years that I have been Leader, I am aware that the Council has enjoyed a valuable working relationship with him and the Romford Synagogue for many years. 

“He was always happy to work alongside the Council, other faiths and communities, and was a great champion for positive and cohesive community relations.

“One example of this was the Rabbi’s work to ensure that Holocaust Memorial Day is now marked as a true multi-faith service in Havering.

“Lee will be missed from our community and my heartfelt feelings go out to his family, friends and wider congregation at this difficult time.”
