Shalom to a new leader

SHE has big boots to fill, but Tamara Samuel is looking forward to the challenge of replacing Shalom’s CEO Hilton Immerman in November, when he retires after almost three decades of impactful leadership.

Already familiar with some of Shalom’s programs and events through attending Limmud Oz, the Sydney Jewish Writers’ Festival and reading books from PJ Library to her young children, Samuel said, “I am incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to lead a communal organisation whose mission and values are close to my heart.

“And I’m excited to be working with a dedicated and talented team to build on the legacy that Hilton has established in his 28 years with the organisation.

“I strongly believe that engagement in our community and culture enhances and supports our everyday lives and challenges.”
