Notes ( returns to text above)

  1. Jewish Year Books were published annually from 1896/7 through 2015, except from the war years 1941 to 1945. Where an officer is first listed in a year book in a particular office, it has been assumed that his term office commenced in the year of publication of the relevent year book, which was generally towards the end of the year prior to year appearing the the title of the year book and that he continued in office until the commencement of office of his successor, unless the office was stated as vacant (e.g. if he is first listed in Jewish Year Books 1925 through 1930, it is assumed that he commenced office in 1924 and continued in office until 1930). However, it should be noted that this is only an assumption and accordingly his actual years of office may differ slightly from those shown here.
