Gersh Lazarow is Senior Rabbi of Temple Beth Israel, our founding Synagogue and the institution that prides itself as being the driving force behind the establishment of The King David School.

Prior to joining TBI in 2013, Gersh served as our School Rabbi and was a member of our Senior Management team. In this capacity, Gersh conceived and established the much-heralded Centre for Living Judaism that is quickly changing the face of Progressive Judaism in our region.

Gersh is a passionate educator with a strong commitment to Progressive Jewish values, tradition and community. He is married to Michelle (a graduate of TKDS) and they have two children, Livia and Sam who both attend the School.
