About me

Gender Female

Occupation Rabbi
Location Edgware, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
Introduction Rabbi Debbie is part of the Rabbinic team at Edgware and Hendon Reform Synagogue. She is a regular contributor on Radio 2's Pause for Thought, BBC London's In Spirit, Three Counties Radio, and has appeared on 4ThoughtTV, Radio 4's Beyond Belief, and Midweek with Libby Purves. She has published articles here and there, as well as contributing to books and journals. She teaches Interfaith encounter and World Religions at Leo Baeck College, and Jewish-Christian Relations to trainee Chrsitian clergy. She is married to the lovely and patient Gary and is mum two cheeky monkeys. She has worked in interfaith and informal education, and loves being a rabbi as it enables her to empower others to find what excites them about their Judaism. If Judaism isn't a source of joy, comfort and meaning, it most likely has no meaningful future... so let's get busy!
