Highgate appoints

Scandinavia's first woman rabbi is to lead services for the Liberal Jewish Community in Crouch End.

Rabbi Sandra Kviat, 31, was recently ordained at Leo Baeck and has already been taken on by the Liberal Judaism head office to advise on educational and other issues.

She served the Lincoln and Northwood and Pinner Liberal congregations as a student rabbi and continues to work with the Progressive community in Copenhagen. "I'm delighted to now be a full part of the Crouch End Chavurah," Rabbi Kviat said. "I love the community and I love the area.

"I'm also looking forward to the 'ev-eryday Judaism' events we put on."
