The top recommended salary for Reform rabbis has risen above £100,000 a year for the first time.
Guidelines published by the Reform movement this week propose an increase to £100,548 from £96,960 in 2008. A pay freeze was recommended last year because of the economic climate.
Full-time rabbis on the lowest point of the scale should see a rise from £36,023 to £37,356.
The movement divides rabbis into six groups depending on factors such as size of congregation and uses a 51-point scale system taking into account responsibilities and length of service.
