Barnet Synagogue is a warm and welcoming traditional orthodox community in North West London/Herts of over 1000 people, within its own eruv. We are looking for a full time Rabbinic couple/Rabbi to engage, inspire and enthuse our members.
We are seeking a charismatic and inspirational Rabbinic couple/Rabbi to lead the community in our spiritual, halachic, educational, welfare and pastoral needs in a manner that is inspiring and exciting to people of all ages.
The position requires a modern approach to leadership and the abilities and personal attributes of the candidate(s) are as important to us as formal qualifications. Of course, the successful candidate will have an acceptable Rabbinical semicha.
The ideal candidate(s) will be both empathetic and intellectually stimulating. They must be able to connect with the diversity of observance within our community and willing to work hard to infuse Barnet with a sense of spirituality, engaging existing members and attracting new members.
This is an exciting opportunity and we will be delighted to hear from candidate(s) who believe they have the right skill set(s) to take on the role.

While life in Israel has returned to normal and hopes are high that Britain is set for a summer without restrictions thanks to vaccines, for billions around the world there is no such imminent light at the end of the tunnel. In the majority of countries around the globe, particularly the poorest, the vaccine rollout has barely kicked off.
That's why Jewish News, the leading source of news and opinion for the entire UK community, is throwing its full weight behind UNICEF’s VaccinAid campaign by using this platform usually reserved for encouraging donations towards our own journalism to instead urge our readers around the globe to perform the greatest mitzvah: saving a life.
We have never before done this for any charity fundraiser but it's hard to recall a campaign that affects so many people, and indeed an entire planet aching for a return to normality. Just like the Chief Rabbi and Rachel Riley, we hope to boost the mission to deliver two billion vaccines, 165 million treatments and 900 million test kits around the world by the end of this year.
Please donate as much as you can, in the spirit of the Talmudic sages: “to save one life is to save the world entire”
