Rabbi Mark Goldsmith
Rabbi Mark Goldsmith is Senior Rabbi of Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue in London. He gained semichah from Leo Baeck College in 1996. His teaching on his Leo Baeck College courses is founded on his deep experience in Reform and Liberal Synagogues. He teaches our Introduction to Jewish Preaching course from the point of view of a Rabbi who has preached hundreds of sermons and Divrei Torah, aiming to connect his congregation with Jewish teaching’s perspective on the world around us. His Jewish Life Cycle course is based in constant practical experience of accompanying the members of his congregation throughout all of the stages, delights and challenges of life and helping to find Jewish meaning within these. Rabbi Mark is past Chair of the Assembly of Reform Rabbis and Cantors UK and the Conference of Liberal Rabbis and Cantors. He currently chairs the Editorial Committee for the new Movement for Reform Judaism Machzor.
