THE BETH DIN
For a Beth Din to be fully constituted a forum of three is required. It would appear that from its earliest days the Manchester Beth Din was made up of three Dayonim and this is the case until today. Dayan Gavriel Krausz , occupies the position of Rosh Beis Din and Dayan Yitzchok Berger that of Av Beis Din. Dayan Yehuda Osher Steiner is the third member. Rabbi Yehuda Brodie (see below) occupies the position of Registrar. Further details regarding the structure of the Beis Din are available on that part of this web-site dealing specifically with the Beth Din.
Since restructuring the corporate structure has not yet been completed. Directors will in due course be appointed to the various companies and a method of linking the companies to the community which it serves will be developed.
