Meet Welwyn Garden City's new rabbinic couple

Duo's role will include developing Jewish life in Hatfield

    Yakov and Eliana Tatz are Welwyn Garden City’s new rabbinic couple, their appointment having been approved unanimously by members on Sunday. They have recently moved back to the UK from Israel with their three young children and are expected to start their duties next month.

    The appointment has been made in partnership with the United Synagogue’s Communities of Potential Board.

    In addition to serving the Welwyn congregation, Rabbi Tatz will focus on developing the growing Jewish community in Hatfield and the surrounding areas. He has most recently been an educator for young people from challenging backgrounds. His wife brings networking skills to her role.

    They appreciated "the opportunity to take up these exciting roles within the United Synagogue”.

    The US's Leonie Lewis said the appointment was the outcome of more than18 months' work in the area.
