Shalom President Jonathan Leib said, “We are excited to have attracted a professional of Tamara’s calibre and communal passion to lead Shalom. It speaks to the quality of the programs that Shalom provides and the opportunity it has to enhance engagement in our community. ”

“I strongly believe that engagement in our community and culture enhances and supports our everyday lives and challenges”, said Tamara. “I read PJ library books to my daughter regularly, purchased my book club books at the Sydney Jewish Writers’ Festival and am inspired and challenged at Limmud-Oz. The opportunity to work at Shalom will allow me to combine my commercial experience with my passion for community”.

Tamara will bring a wealth of experience from both commercial and communal organisations to Shalom. Her impressive resume includes 20 years of commercial experience including at The Boston Consulting Group and the Commonwealth Bank. Her communal involvement includes being a member of JCA’s Strategic Planning Committee for the last 6 years where she was involved in the introduction of PJ library and Y2i to Sydney. During her university years Tamara produced and performed in AUJS revues and was a youth movement leader.

“I am incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to lead a communal organisation whose mission and values are close to my heart, and 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” said Tamara.

Tamara will begin at Shalom in November ahead of Dr Immerman’s communal farewell in late November.
