Vacancy – Chair of Governors

Leo Baeck College, the preeminent UK and international progressive rabbinic educational institution, is looking for a new Chair for 2023. Leo Baeck College has trained generations of Liberal, Reform and Masorti rabbis and its outstanding academic faculty are continuing to develop cohorts of rabbis and educators who will lead and support progressive communities in the UK and internationally for decades to come.

If you are committed to sustaining and growing progressive Judaism through the development of the next generation of rabbis and educators and are knowledgeable about good governance, about the education world generally and ideally have worked in partnership with educational professionals this is your opportunity to play a vital role in the college’s success.

We hope to interview prospective candidates over the next couple of months so that the prospective chair has time to sit on the Board of Governors until the AGM in May 2023 in preparation to take over as Chair.

 If you are interested, please in the first instance e-mail the acting Chair, Mimi Konigsberg, at
