It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Arnold Paucker. Dr Arnold Paucker, OBE, born in Berlin in 1921, was Director of the Leo Baeck Institute London from 1959 – 2001, and editor of the Leo Baeck Institute Year Book from 1978 – 1992. His many years of dedicated service have profoundly shaped the Institute and its Year Book and he will be deeply missed.
