Harvey Belovski

Rabbi Dr Harvey Belovski is senior rabbi of Golders Green Synagogue in London, a role he has held since 2003. He is also Chief Strategist and Rabbinic Head for University Jewish Chaplaincy, an organisation that deploys couples to support Jewish students on campuses across the UK.



With rabbinic ordination from Gateshead Talmudical College – the première rabbinic school in Europe – Rabbi Belovski also holds degrees in mathematics (MA – Oxford), organisational psychology (MSc – City University, London) and hermeneutics (PhD – University of London).

Rabbi Belovski is the founding principal of Rimon Jewish Primary School and the head of modern rabbinic thought at the London School of Jewish Studies.

In addition, he is the organisational consultant for Kisharon, a network of schools, residential provision and employment opportunities for children and adults with special needs.

Rabbi Belovski is engaged with many interfaith projects, most notably as a long-standing faculty member of the Senior Faith Leadership Programme at Windsor Castle.

He is the author of and contributor to several books and hundreds of articles, and regularly broadcasts on the Radio 2 Chris Evans Show. He has also presented Radio 4’s ‘Something Understood’.

I welcome the opportunity to participate in ‘Liberty, Legacy, Leadership’ to share best practice, be inspired by world-leaders in the field and contribute a perspective from ancient Jewish wisdom to a wide audience.
