Rabbi Leonard Gordon, an instructor in the MEAH Program at Hebrew College and Co-Director of Interfaith Partners for Peace, will visit BHC for the weekend of TishaB’Av to share a program of teaching and services.
Gordon was an instructor at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. He is now rabbi emeritus of the Germantown Jewish Center in Philadelphia where he served as rabbi for 16 years. Gordon also served for six years as rabbi of Congregation Mishkan Tefila in Newton, MA. His rabbinic experiences include serving a small rural congregation in and around Kenyon College in Ohio where he was the sole Jewish professional on the faculty.
In his career, Gordon has also chaired the National Havurah Committee and developed a deep appreciation
for what small communities can do to create vibrancy. He is presently the Co-Chair of the Jewish-Muslim Taskforce for the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, and he serves as a board member of the International Jewish Committee for Interreligious Consultations, National Council of Synagogues, and the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.
Gordon has been honored by the Jewish Theological Seminary, Neighborhood Interfaith Movement, and the Mid-Atlantic United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism.
