Can you offer spiritual leadership to our Kehillah?

Part-time  vacancy  for  a  Rabbi  (0.4-0.5  FTE  negotiable) 

Kehillah  North  London  is  a  warm,  exciting  urban  community  based  in  Stoke  Newington.    Most  of our  members  live  in  Hackney,  Haringey  and  Islington,  and  some  are  further  afield. Here  you  will  find  both  deeply  religious  and  deeply  secular  people,  sometimes  both  at  once!    We have  a  love  of  learning  and  are  known  for  our  diversity. Valuing  relationships  will  be  at  the  heart  of  your  spiritual  leadership.    You  will  be  able  to  get  to know  people  and  connect  them  to  others  in  our  community  so  that  they  feel  at  home.    You  will  be able  to  listen  to  individual  concerns.    Your  approach  to  your  role  and  that  of  the  synagogue  today will  be  flexible  enough  that  you  can  learn  from  our  membership  and  create  new  ways  of  growing our  community. The  role  includes  overseeing  the  cheder,  working  with  sessional  and  volunteer  teachers  and  taskmanaging  a  part-time  administrator. Service  leading  at  Kehillah  is  shared  with  our  ba’alei  tefillah  and  supported  by  a  team  of  wardens.   We have a hard-working  Management  Committee,  and  many  members  are  active  in  various  ways, including  co-ordinating,  hosting  or  leading  events  and  sharing  skills  or  knowledge. We love  our  community  and  are  looking  for  a  rabbi  who  can  partner  with  us  to  create  and  grow Jewish  life  in  this  part  of  north  London.
You  will  have  a  recognised  rabbinic  ordination  and  be  eligible  for  full  membership  of  the Conference  of  Liberal  Rabbis  and  Cantors.
