Full Time Rabbi/Rabbinic Couple

£28k to £34k pa depending on experience, plus accommodation and car /car allowance

Birmingham Central United Synagogue is a friendly, welcoming and inclusive leading orthodox congregation, established over 130 years ago, where everyone is made to feel comfortable, whatever their background or level of observance.

Birmingham is home to one of the largest Jewish student populations in the UK and hosts a full-time Jewish Student Chaplain, as well as other campus Rabbanim. During term-time, the students make a valuable contribution to our community.

Our ‘state of the art’ synagogue, banqueting suite, community deli, and mikvah are on site in Edgbaston, close to major road and rail links.

The new Rabbi/Rabbinic Couple will inspire, enthuse, and motivate individuals as they connect with and contribute to our diverse community. Applicants will have exceptional ‘people skills’, be happy to have an open home policy and be ready to reach out to all ages while promoting orthodox Jewish practice.

Reflecting Birmingham Central’s modern and orthodox outlook, the successful candidate is likely to have a secular degree, and essentially must hold a Semicha acceptable to the Office of the Chief Rabbi. To fulfil the role, applicants should be self-motivated, energetic, well organised, and conscientious team players.
