Eastbourne gets rabbi
The Eastbourne Progressive Jewish Congregation (Beit Chaverim) is to be served by a part-time minister - Rabbi Anna Gerrard from the Liberal Judaism head office team.
Rabbi Gerrard will officiate at the erev Shabbat services on the fourth Friday of every month and will also offer pastoral support to congregants.
Chairman Andrew Jay said it was "another momentous step in the history of the congregation, now celebrating its 10th year. We look forward to a long and happy association with Rabbi Gerrard."
