Rabbi Helen

Rabbi Helen Freeman was a speech therapist before ordination in 1990. She has been involved in a conversion programme for all that time, welcoming individuals from many backgrounds whose spiritual path brought them to Judaism. She has tutored a number of student rabbis and taught shiur in at Leo Baeck College.

Since coming to West London she has enjoyed teaching adults, not only the conversion class but also those who choose adult bar mitzvah. Rabbi Freeman is a qualified analytical psychologist and is studying for a PhD on the Dead Sea Scrolls. She is chair of a Central London Council of Christians and Jews and a member of the Interfaith clergy group in Marylebone. She cofounded a Jewish Muslim Women’s Group.

She has written chapters for the Women Rabbis Books ‘Hear Our Voice’ and ‘Taking up the Timbrel’ as well as for a book on sermons against atheism, Really Useful Prayers and a chapter on Hugo Gryn in ‘Great Reform Thinkers.’

She set up the cancer support group and co-facilitates the Carers Support Group.

She shares her home with her lovely husband David, two cats and a cockerpoo dog.
