Rabbi Danny Kirsch was raised in Hampstead Garden Suburb, where he caught the community involvement bug as a youth leader and a communal activist.
Early career moves led him to the fashion industry, however it was the Jewish community which eventually won the day. Five years in Israel at Ohr Somayach Yeshiva prepared him to return as a Rabbi to England with his wonderful wife, Jackie.
He served as national director of JYSG and as a London Student Chaplain and has for many years run the exciting outreach educational and social organisation the JLE.
As Director, Rabbi Danny Kirsch takes responsibility for ensuring there are funds available to finance the hundreds of programmes the JLE runs each year.
