Joining the community’s roof-body as its bookkeeper, Cynthia Herman subsequently progressed to her current position as accounts administrator.
Board of Deputies president Yair Miller paid tribute to Herman at the organisation’s annual meeting last Tuesday night. “It’s rare for anyone to dedicate 25 years to one organisation,” he said, making a presentation. “Cynthia Herman’s commitment to the Board of Deputies and the community is exceptional.”
Born in Singapore into an Orthodox family, Cynthia moved to Israel with her parents and brother in 1969. There she met her future husband Michael and they married in Australia in 1973, having two children and two grandchildren.
Her working career in Australia has spanned 30 years, starting in administration at the public service, followed by working in accounts in the computer and advertising industries and joining the Board of Deputies 25 years ago.
“I’ve worked under seven presidents and a number of honorary accountants,” she said. “During this period I’ve witnessed the growth of the Board of Deputies into the vibrant organisation it is today.”
