A Statement from FRS

The FRS community was concerned and saddened to read the article published by the Jewish Chronicle on 19 December, which included a number of allegations against Rabbi David Mitchell. Rabbi Mitchell was the FRS Director of Education prior to enrolling at Leo Baeck College.

Any young adults who grew up at FRS and who might have been affected by any of the issues raised in the article, at any point during their lives and in any context, should know that the the clergy team at FRS are available to support them in confidence. As a community, we are championing a full and robust ethics process both within the Assembly of Rabbis and for communities within the Reform Judaism movement, and recognise the importance of independent accountability.
 
Please email Rabbi Miriam Berger if you wish to discuss these issues.
