Melbourne to Have Reform Services for First Time

Download PDF for this date

Melbourne will have Reform Jewish services for the first time during the coming high holidays. With financial support from the World Union of Progressive Judaism, the services will be held by Rabbi Jerome Mark from the United States. In organizing Reform Judaism here the Liberal Synagogue of London is rushing the necessary material. Rabbi Mark, a graduate of the Hebrew Union College of Cincinnati, was formerly the rabbi of a Reform congregation in Selma, Alabama.
