The Liberal Jewish Synagogue Appoints New Rabbi

 The LJS, 19th September 2011

The Liberal Jewish Synagogue is delighted to announce the appointment of Rabbi Neil Janes in November.  He will join LJS Senior Rabbi Alexandra Wright who ordained him at Leo Baeck College in 2006.

He has served as congregational rabbi at Finchley Progressive Synagogue for over four years. He then moved to Israel to study for a PhD in Jewish Thought at the University of Haifa which he will continue on his return to the UK.

Rabbi Janes said, ‘I am extremely excited to be returning to the congregational rabbinate at the LJS, a community with such great history and importance, and to be working alongside Rabbi Wright.’

Rabbi Janes is married to Michelle. They have an eighteen month old daughter, Ayelet and are expecting a second child at the end of January. He will replace Rabbi David Wilfond who is returning to Jerusalem.
