LBC 2024 Fundraising Appeal

Advancing Progressive Jewish Scholarship

Leo Baeck College has been training and developing rabbis, teachers and scholars for over 68 years, providing clergy for communities and advancing progressive Jewish values and scholarship through its high calibre faculty and curriculum.

This year we are raising funds to provide the support that our students and faculty need to continue to flourish, intellectually and spiritually, and to develop our world-class library.

We look forward to seeing you at one (or all) of our upcoming events showcasing just a few of our outstanding scholars.

We need your help to ensure that progressive Jewish communities can continue to thrive steered by outstanding, LBC trained leaders.
