The induction service for Rabbi Andrea Zanardo drew a crowd of 250 to Brighton and Hove Reform Synagogue. The induction was conducted by Reform movement rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner and the congregation included civic dignitaries and representatives of other local synagogues.
“It was a fabulous day,” Rabbi Zanardo said afterwards. “I felt honoured by the presence of so many friends and colleagues.
“I look forward to serving this community, whose warmth I have been blessed to experience already.”
Brighton and Hove Reform chairman Michael Harris was “so proud to see our synagogue organise such an excellent occasion. Rabbi Zanardo and his wife Sara have already earned much respect within our community and we look forward to a strong, enduring relationship.”
