Rabbi Dr Rene Pfertzel

RabbiPfertzelRabbi Rene was born in Strasbourg and graduated at the Strasbourg University, where he was awarded a teaching degree (Agrégation) and in 2004 a PhD in Biblical Studies.

He is a father of two daughters (ages 21 and 24) and has been involved in the local Reform community for almost ten years. Early 2000’s, he started to get involved in the Liberal Community in Lyon, France.

He worked in Education for 25 years, teaching in various schools around France and decided to switch career to the rabbinate.

Rabbi Rene has now moved on to another post within the Liberal Judaism family. We were sorry to see him go but we wish him b’hatzlacha and every success. He will always be welcome by our community.

Our new spiritual leader, guide and rabbi is Student Rabbi Robyn Ashworth-Steen. Meet Robyn by clicking here.
