Welwyn confirmed as full US member

On Monday 11th September at US Council, Welwyn Garden City Hebrew Congregation was unanimously ratified as a full member community of the United Synagogue.

This news follows an overwhelming community vote in favour of joining The US in July, which saw over 85% of community members in attendance approving the move.

Tim Cole, Chair of Welwyn Garden City Hebrew Congregation, said: “I am thrilled that Welwyn Garden City Hebrew Congregation has been confirmed as a full member community of the United Synagogue. There are a number of benefits that this will bring to our community, which include being able to offer more to our members, working together with The US to recruit a new Rabbi and increasing awareness of the Welwyn Garden City area as a developing hub for Jewish life. The community is also excited that we can continue to progress and grow with the full backing of the United Synagogue.”

There are now just six US affiliated communities remaining.
