Lord Lady Rabbi Up in the Hayouse

The JTA reports,

Rabbi Julia Neuberger is to become the first female rabbi — and the second rabbi of either gender — to serve in Britain’s House of Lords.

A health care activist, Neuberger joins the upper chamber of the United Kingdom’s legislature for the Liberal Democrat Party. The first rabbi to sit in the House of Lords was Immanuel Jakobovits, Orthodox chief rabbi from 1966 to 1991, who became a peer in 1987.

Mazal tov, mazal tov.
