Rabbi Jonathan Romain
Confessions of a Rabbi
Rabbi, writer and broadcaster, Jonathan Romain is minister of Maidenhead Synagogue. He writes for The Times, Guardian and Jewish Chronicle, and is heard on the BBC. He received the MBE for his work nationally in helping mixed-faith couples. He is chaplain to the Jewish Police Association, chair of the Accord Coalition for inclusive education and a Patron of Dignity in Dying. His latest book, Confessions of a Rabbi (Biteback), has had wide coverage in the media.
He will share his experiences as a rabbi: rollercoaster of crises, emotional traumas, moral dilemmas, attempts at seduction, multiple murders, machievellian families, funerals that go wrong, weddings that are hijacked, and fighting his way through a maze of other people’s sexual fantasies.
