Another Tabick takes to the pulpit


The New North London Synagogue has appointed student rabbi Roni Tabick as assistant minister.

Mr Tabick, 32, who is shortly to receive his Conservative rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York, is the son of Reform rabbis Jackie and Larry Tabick.

He will take up the position in August and will also work with the new Masorti community in Stoke Newington, as well as the movement's young adults and students group, Marom.

NNLS co-chair David Raff said it was a "brilliant appointment. He's got the JTS training and knows and understands our community as he has been informally mentored by our rabbi, Jonathan Wittenberg."

Rabbi Larry Tabick described his son as "a chip off the old block. He has been heading down a Masorti path for some time and we are not unsympathetic to that. He is strongly egalitarian."

Roni Tabick is one of the JTS's Gladstein Fellows, combining rabbinic training with service to small communities. He has a degree in maths and philosophy from Oxford, taught religious studies at Manchester Grammar and spent a year in Israel with his wife, Shoshana.
