Me in a minute
I do a great deal of interfaith and community work
I am an active member of the lively Jewish Community in Hong Kong and was President of the Reform Congregation for 4 years. I am also a director of the Hong Kong Jewish Film Association, and the UIA, and I set up the Hong Kong Friends of Tel Aviv University, an educational and charitable institution in Hong Kong. I do a great deal of interfaith and community work in the vibrant and rich cultural life of Hong Kong.
On the rare occasion that I am not working or involved in the Jewish community, I enjoy hiking the hills of Hong Kong and travel.
