Jonathan Keren-Black

Leo Baeck Centre
East Kew, Melbourne, Victoria
After ordination in London in 1988, I worked at a Synagogue in Elstree Hertfordshire for 15 years. I was involved in developing the pluralist Jewish state school sector with primary schools and eventually the Jewish Community Secondary School.  I was also involved in developing the new liturgy of the UK Liberal Jewish Movement
and became heavily involved in environmental work, building an underground house in London, and an Eco-House in Camberwell after arriving in Melbourne in 2003, where I also established JECO, the Jewish Ecological Coalition, and has been involved with The Australian Religious Response to Climate Change for some years. I am very concerned about the unfolding climate crisis and consider it the most pressing threat to humanity.
I was also instrumental in establishing the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia. In 2007, I spoke at an interfaith seminar in Canberra with the Dalai Lama on ‘Paths to Peace’, and also gave a keynote lecture for the First Common Dreams conference in Sydney and again in 2019.
I believe in putting prayer into practice. This brings the importance of the words and experience of prayer into sharp focus. For this reason, I was a leader of the editorial teams for the latest Shabbat and Daily prayer book (2010) and more recently the High Holy Day one (2019), used in Progressive congregations across the region.
