Rabbi Fabian Sborovsky has been Menorah Synagogue’s Rabbi since 2015. He was born in Paraguay and has lived in Israel, the United States, Sweden, and Germany before deciding to settle in Manchester. He studied at Belmont University and Vanderbilt University in the United States and is fluent in several languages. He was ordained from the Abraham Geiger College in Germany.
As Rabbi, Fabian espouses a joyful Jewish experience and synagogue atmosphere that enables spiritual growth, encourages learning and direct interaction with traditional sources. He is dedicated to inspiring the positive and confident Jewish identity which he himself embraces. Grounded in tradition, he is committed to Jewish pluralism within a welcoming, dynamic, and open community with active involvement in society at large.
Before moving to Manchester Rabbi Fabian served the Beth Hillel congregation in Rome. His rabbinic student pulpits included extended internships in Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Germany. He has been active in Jewish education and Jewish social entrepreneurial projects, contributing valuably to the ongoing revitalisation of European Jewish life.
In his spare time he enjoys being outdoors, learning about historical recipes and traditional Jewish food preparation, Nordic design, and spending time with friends and family.
