Student Rabbi Gabriel Kanter-Webber

Shalom! I’m Gabriel, a writer and rabbi-to-be currently based in London.

You can use this website to browse my blog posts, plus a variety of sermons, shiurim and so on.

I was also the person behind the Just William’s Year project, a unique endeavour to catalogue and review each of the 360 classic Just William stories by Richmal Crompton one day at a time.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

About Gabriel

Gabriel was born in Kingston-on-Thames. After studying Politics & International Relations at Sussex University, he spent a year as a youth worker for LJY-Netzer, the youth movement of Liberal Judaism, before entering Leo Baeck College to study for the rabbinate. He has served in many congregations as a student, including three years with the York Liberal Jewish Community.

With a particular affection for Liberal Jewish communities outside the London centres, Gabriel has a special interest in connecting Jewish values to contemporary events and social justice issues (often in real-time), and is passionate about enabling people to weave Judaism – subtly but strongly – into their everyday lives.

Gabriel is a keen crochet-worker, and enjoys archery, reading and radio comedy. His wife Manuella (married 2019) is a maths teacher, and they are parents to Omri (born 2020). He is the troublemaker previously known as Gabriel Webber.
