Glasgow Reform Synagogue – Part Time Rabbi

Founded in 1933, Glasgow Reform Synagogue is the only Reform community in Scotland.

We have over 200 members and we are a warm and welcoming community based on the outskirts of the city, just a short distance from the coast, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.

We provide a broad range of activities for people of all ages, including a small but very successful Cheder. We are seeking to appoint a rabbi on a permanent, part-time basis (circa 21 hours per week).

Applications are invited from ordained rabbis and student rabbis who expect to be ordained and to qualify as a member of the Assembly of Reform Rabbis and Cantors within the next 18 months.

The successful candidate will be a confident communicator, an enthusiastic and engaging individual who can connect with the community at all levels – someone who can work positively with us to build an inviting, creative and inspiring environment and help us lead our community forward.

You should be confident and able to work closely with young adults and families to guide them in their development of personal Jewish practice ensuring the next generation of Reform Jewry in Glasgow and the surrounding area. You will also actively participate in services, festivals, social and life cycle events.

Our leadership are committed to providing their Rabbi with the support and flexibility needed to work part time.

For full details of the role or to arrange a confidential informal discussion or a visit, please contact Babeth Naddell, Synagogue Chair;
