Rabbi Belovski and Vicki Belovski

Our senior rabbi, Rabbi Dr Harvey Belovski, joined Golders Green Synagogue in 2003, having previously served two communities in North East London.

Rabbi Belovski

Rabbi Belovski is involved in every aspect of our community’s life. He holds extensive pastoral, halachic and educational roles, ensures the delivery of high-quality, exciting Shul services and drives the community’s strategy in collaboration with our rabbinic and executive teams. He is also principal of Rimon Jewish Primary School, the wonderful school that shares our site.

His areas of interest include 19th-century Torah commentaries, mediaeval hermeneutics, chasidic melodies, running and walking.

Rabbi Belovski read Maths at University College, Oxford, gained semicha from Gateshead Yeshiva, pursued advanced Torah studies at the Gateshead Beis Hatalmud Kollel and holds postgraduate degrees in organisational psychology and hermeneutics from the University of London.

In addition to his roles with us at Golders Green Synagogue and Rimon, Rabbi Belovski is chief strategist and rabbinic head of University Jewish Chaplaincy, consultant lead for rabbinic recruitment at the United Synagogue and rabbi of Kisharon.

Rabbi Belovski is a regular contributor to BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show, with over 130 live broadcasts, and has also made a series of programmes for BBC Radio 4. He is the author of four books; the most recent of which is ‘A Point in Time: Reflections through the Year’ (2021).

He is a faculty member of the Senior Faith in Leadership Programme at St George’s House, Windsor Castle, a trustee of the HOPE not hate Charitable Trust and an independent member of the Community and Voluntary Service Honours Committee at the Cabinet Office.
