This year PLJC will enjoy the Rabbinic support of Dr Tali Artman Partock.
Tali is an associate lecturer at the Faculty of Divinity at the University of Cambridge, as well as teaching Rabbinic Literature at LBC. Born in Israel, she holds a PhD in Rabbinic Literature, awarded by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and specialises in Aggadah (non-legalistic rabbinic literature) and Jewish-Christian dialogue in Late Antiquity. Tali has been living in Cambridge since 2014 with her husband and children, and is a member of the city’s Beth Shalom Reform Synagogue. Her transition into the rabbinate is inspired by a wish to bridge the gap between academic Jewish studies and the modern practices of Jewish life.
Tali began her rabbinical studies at Leo Baeck College in October 2018. Leo Baeck College is a preeminent institution of Jewish scholarship and learning. Almost every serving Liberal and Reform rabbi in the UK, and many abroad, trained there. Leo Baeck College was proud to train Britain’s first female rabbi, first LGBTQI+ rabbi and, most recently, the first Spanish-born rabbi since the country’s expulsion of Jews in 1492.
PLJC is also fortunate to enjoy the visits of guest Rabbis’ from other LJ communities and student rabbis from both the Liberal Jewish and Reform traditions to lead our monthly Shabbat services, Festivals and High Holy Days.
