A scholar in the capital

THE ACT Jewish Community has recently welcomed a scholar in residence, 31-year-old Eryn London.

Originally from the United States, London made aliyah in 2010, and is currently studying to become an Orthodox rabbi at Yeshivat Maharat.

In Canberra, she will coordinate educational activities and events, delivering regular sermons and assisting in pastoral care while Rabbi Alon Meltzer directs the capital campaign.
