Rabbi Josh Levy
Rabbi Josh Levy has been a rabbi at Alyth since 2008.
He is a Lecturer in Rabbinic Literature at Leo Baeck College, teaching courses in Progressive Rabbinic Decision Making and Service Leading. He is also a member of the Board of Governors of Akiva School and Chairman of the Standing Committee of the Reform Bet Din. He recently chaired the Assembly of Rabbis, and also led their working group looking at issues of Inherited Status, which changed the way that the Reform movement welcomes people with Jewish and non-Jewish lineage.
Josh is passionate about developing innovative and engaging tefillah, and about sharing the joys of high-level text study. His area of special interest is conversion and status, having written his rabbinic thesis on Tractate Gerim of the Babylonian Talmud which deals with laws of converts and conversion.
Josh lives in Finchley with his wife Jude, son Jonah and daughter Noa.
