Welcome to The Leo Baeck Centre
We pride ourselves on being the centre for Judaism in the Eastern Suburbs. We are not just a synagogue but indeed a community centre, where we offer education for all ages, culture: arts, music, dance, film, community, friendship, food as well as powerful and uplifting services, prayer and spiritual search and engagement. Leo Baeck was a revered leader of the German Jewish community who anticipated the Nazi destruction and helped many people leave for safer places - including Melbourne. We are proud to carry his name.
Although we are celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2009, we are still an energetic and enthusiastic community with a complete spread of ages from newborn to almost 100. We number around 300 households, and they include people with orthodox and progressive backgrounds, mixed families, single parent families, students and young people - you name it! We believe that 'all are created in the image of God', female and male, regardless of race, colour or belief, or sexual orientation. We hope you will be comfortable with us.
I am delighted to be the full-time Rabbi of this wonderful community. I arrived in January 2003 from Britain with my wife Sue and our two children, Naomi and Adam. The kids now attend The King David School, the proud achievement of Rabbi John Levi and the Victorian Union of Progressive Judaism, of which we are an important constituent.
You have visited our virtual community - why not come along and visit us in person!
