Stevenage-based North Herts Liberal Jewish Community has become a full constituent member of Liberal Judaism.
The congregation was given “developing community” status in 2010, including rabbinic and financial support. As a result of its progress, Liberal Judaism’s council voted unanimously on Sunday to upgrade it.
There was a Ryder Cup flavour to the Jewish Care Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Dyrham Park, Herts, which raised £40,000 for the charity’s Rela Goldhill Lodge in Golders Green, supporting 20 people with severe physical and sensory disabilities.
Former European team members Paul Way and Paul Broadhurst were among the pros taking part, along with Jewish player Sam Little.
