LBC Ordination 2018

On Monday July 4th at the Liberal Jewish Synagogue, Rabbis Nathan Godleman and Roberta Harris-Eckstein were the latest graduates of Leo Baeck College to be ordained. An emotional and uplifting service was expertly conducted by Rabbis Robyn Ashworth-Steen and Kath Vardi, and rousing music was provided by Rabbi Hannah Kingston, Student rabbi Cantor Gershon Silins and Student rabbi Igor Zinkov.

The Ordination address was given by Dr Jeremy Schonfield, John D Rayner Reader in Jewish Liturgy at LBC. Speaking after the service Rabbi Dr Charles Middleburgh, Dean and Director of Jewish Studies, added: I was told time after time at kiddush how those present felt it was the most moving and inspiring Ordination they had ever attended. We are deeply grateful to all who contributed to making our 2018 Ordination service so very special.
