New president vows to bring stability

THE United Hebrew Congregation is "in a great place and in a great moment," the shul's newly-elected president Robert Dewar told the annual meeting.

"The most obvious priority is to build on this by bringing continuity, stability, direction and leadership," said Mr Dewar, deputy director of finance at Sheffield Hallam University.

"We need to complete the building's refurbishment and the modernisation of finances and to ensure we have well-attended minyanim."

Mr Dewar said if one includes the children to UHC's 942 adult members, there must be over 1,000 "Jewish souls" for whom the UHC plays a significant part in their lives reaching them "often in the most profound ways and times".
