Liberal Judaism welcomes newly ordained rabbis

10th July 2013

Liberal Judaism was delighted by the ordination of three fantastic new rabbis at Leo Baeck College on Sunday 7th July in a ceremony which saw Rabbis Benji Stanley, Leah Jordan and Esther Hugenholtz receive semicha. Liberal Judaism, along with the Movement for Reform Judaism, is a proud funder of the rabbinical seminary and Jewish studies college.

Commenting on the ordinations, Liberal Judaism’s chief executive, Rabbi Danny Rich said: “Leo Baeck College has ordained three excellent rabbis, and I am personally delighted that Rabbi Leah Jordan will be Liberal Judaism's first ever full time Chaplain to Students and Young Adults.”

Liberal Judaism’s chairman, Lucian J. Hudson, said: “Liberal Judaism takes great pride in the  achievements of Leo Baeck College. Training Progressive rabbis is a shared investment in the future of our two movements. We are blessed with yet another generation of thoughtful and engaged rabbis.”
