In January 2008, Rabbi Gordon accepted a call to become the rabbi of New London Synagogue.
Rabbi Jeremy Gordon has been a member of New London since the age of 1. He grew up, attended Cheder and celebrated his Bar Mitzvah here.
Rabbi Jeremy has a first class honours degree in Law from Cambridge University and subsequently went to work in television for the BBC and a number of independent production companies. His love of Judaism was really ignited at the Limmud Conference in December 1995. This marked the start of a decade of study in England, at the Hebrew University and the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem and the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. He graduated from JTS with Rabbinic Ordination, a Masters in Midrash (Rabbinic Exegesis) and a number of academic awards.
While in New York, Rabbi Jeremy trained as a hospital Chaplain and spent many hours working as a Chaplain with the Red Cross in the aftermath of the September 11th suicide attacks. He has been active in a number of social action campaigns – particularly relating to refugee issues and international development – and has served as convenor of a major interfaith dialogue forum in New York.
Following ordination in 2004 Rabbi Gordon served St Albans Masorti Synagogue for four years before coming to NLS. He is married to Josephine who directs the arts-charity Dash Arts. They have two sons, Carmi and Harry, and a daughter Eliana.
Rabbi Gordon appears regularly on Radio 2's 'Pause for Thought' slot. He has published numerous articles in the Jewish Chronicle and other papers and has appeared in various documentary projects. His recently published collection of articles, Spiritual Vagabondry, is available here.
