Student rabbis bring their bears to support Children In Need

14 November 2017

Student rabbis at Leo Baeck College got into the Children In Need spirit by bringing their favourite teddy bears to services and classes to raise funds for the charity.

The College’s annual Leo Bear Day began with a special morning service, organised by Student Rabbi Nathan ‘Bearmeister’ Godleman, which saw more than 20 students and staff join in. The theme then continued throughout the day.

College Principal Rabbi Dr Deborah Kahn-Harris said: “I am delighted that, through our annual Leo Bear Day, we are able as a College community to support Children in Need.

“My teddy bear of choice for the day, my shoulder dragon, reminds me of what powerful dragons all of our students are in their desires to be a force for good in our world.”

Leo Baeck College is a preeminent institution of Jewish scholarship and learning. Almost every serving Liberal and Reform rabbi in the UK, and many abroad, trained there.
