BBUK Yitzchak Rabin Lodge, in conjunction with Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue: The Rabbi Michael Leigh Memorial Lecture
A conversation between Rabbi Mark Goldsmith, senior rabbi of EHRS and special guest Rabbi Jeremy Rosen
Jeremy Rosen is an Orthodox rabbi, author, and lecturer. He is best known for advocating an approach to Jewish life that is open to the benefits of modernity and tolerant of individual variations while remaining committed to halacha.
Rabbi Rosen’s thinking was strongly influenced by his father, who rejected fundamentalist and obscurantist approaches in favour of being open to the best the secular world has to offer while remaining committed to religious life. He went to Carmel College and then to yeshivot in Israel. In between he attended Cambridge University, graduating with a degree in Moral Sciences.
In 2009 he accepted the position of rabbi to the Persian Jewish Center of Manhattan. He also teaches classes at the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan and continues to write and lecture.
