On Seder night (coming up this year on March 30th) we make the powerful declaration, “Let all who are hungry, come and eat!” This statement of radical inclusivity and welcoming is a particularly important value for Pesach, and so we are dedicating this month’s newsletter to the value of inclusivity – welcoming people all backgrounds and abilities to our Jewish communities.
To support Yesod’s growth, we are recruiting for the new position of a Professional Development Manager. Candidates will have extensive planning and implementation experience of professional development, and will ideally have familiarity with this side of Human Resources management. Some understanding of a European Jewish community and/or organisational context is desirable.
