Introducing Rabbi Aharon Zerbib and Rebbetzen Yehudit Zerbib 

The Community is delighted to announce the appointment of Rabbi and Rebbetzen Zerbib with effect from 1st December 2015.  Rabbi Zerbib joins us from his previous position as Chief Rabbi of Bulgaria. As the leader of a community of less than 3,000 Jews, he was involved in a diverse range of activities from conducting religious services, to meeting with politicians and Ambassadors, organising Bar and Bat Mitzvah teaching and being the resident shochet as well as organising the Sofia Jewish Expo in 2013 !

Rabbi Zerbib grew up in England and France and his prior experience includes time with Amiel, a teaching programme in Israel and the Diaspora and as Assistant Rabbi at the Vienna Synagogue in Tel Aviv. He has an amazing pedigree for the role being the 11th generation of Rabbi's in his family !


His wife, Yehudit, grew up in Israel but has American roots and has wide experience of organising community events and education with a particular focus on Women and Youth and in Bulgaria set up and ran Benenu, a very successful programme introducing young people to victims of the Holocaust. to both learn and help them with their needs.  They have three young boys. 


His main role as Chief Rabbi in Bulgaria was to narrow the gap between the secular and religious life, and to connect Jews with spirituality and inspire them and the Board of Management are delighted to welcome him and his family to our community.  

In the words of Rabbi Zerbib, "Growing up the son of a Rabbi, I was awed and excited by my father's service as a community Rabbi in Europe. I knew that I wanted to dedicate my life to enhancing and inspiring Jewish people worldwide. I am very excited about my new role at Northwood and I shall try to be a beacon of light to all, regardless of sex, race or background. I shall work to create a Community with strong moral values and set goals for generosity and kindness. Together we will seek to follow the path that Hashem has shown us, whist we each grow as individuals".


Welcome to Northwood.
