Hebrew Synagogue is seen as an advisory body on matters pertaining to religious practice and is widely consulted by many agencies.
Jewish law provides no support for the post of a "chief rabbi" because every rabbi has equal authority in principle. Sephardi Jews in the United Kingdom are mainly members of independent synagogues and so there is no single rabbi currently recognised by them as a chief rabbi. Hebrew Synagogue does recognise a Senior Rabbi, who's mission is to strengthen and invigorate all Jewish communities and guide their respective members to strive to become powerhouses of religious commitment, educational excellence and social responsibility.
Members of the public are welcome to contact the Hebrew Synagogue office with any queries. Bill White Limited provides funding and financial guarantees for Hebrew Synagogue, which is a company limited by guarantee and registered in Scotland.
