Birmingham Progressive Synagogue has appointed Hannah Minsky to develop its new youth club venture.
The youth worker, originally from Southgate, is studying maths and philosophy at Birmingham University.
Her background is in the Netzer youth movement and she has done youth work in the Jewish and wider community.
Movement chief executive Rabbi Danny Rich said the appointment reflected “the huge demand for Liberal Judaism in the Midlands, which has only grown since the opening of the Midlands Centre for Liberal Judaism last year”.
Ms Minsky relished involvement in “what will be an incredible youth club. We have already had our first phenomenally successful event — for Red Nose Day — and I look forward to many more”.
