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.
Closing date for completed applications: 5pm on Monday 10th February 2020.
It is expected that interviews will take place on Sunday 16th and/or 23rd February.
