GROUND-BREAKING: UK first for new rabbinic role at Mosaic Jewish Community in Stanmore 

 Published on: 11th March 2022   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

The Mosaic Jewish Community in Stanmore has introduced the first ever development Rabbi in the UK.

Rabbi Anna Wolfson has joined the Mosaic Jewish Community, with responsibilities across the three synagogues which make up the organisation – Mosaic Reform, Mosaic Liberal and Mosaic Masorti.  

Her role is also to develop other expressions of Judaism beyond these existing movements, furthering Mosaic’s mission of “Choose your Jewish life”.

Commenting on her role, Rabbi Anna said: “Being a Rabbi across three communities in one space has not been done before. 

“This is not just about bringing new people into the community but letting them feel ownership.  

“I am looking forward to building relationships, working with my rabbinic colleagues, facilitating creative community spaces, and being part of the wider Stanmore community.”   

Although this is a new concept in the UK, a Jewish “emergent community network” has developed in the USA which brings together varying synagogues trying to develop new forms of Jewish expression alongside existing religious movements.

As well as her development role, Rabbi Anna will spend around a quarter of her time at Mosaic Liberal working alongside Rabbi Rachel Benjamin.
