Cambridge & East Anglia
Rabbi Mordechai Zeller & Lea Taragin-Zeller are the Jewish Chaplains for Cambridge and East Anglia universities. They have three children: Kol David, Raz Adama and Elana Almaya.
Mordechai is a wannabe mystic, shofar master and passionate storyteller. If you have an interesting family story – he would love to hear all about it!
Before coming to Cambridge, Mordechai taught Jewish Mysticism, Zohar and Chassidut at Yeshivat Maale Gilboa. Mordechai also worked as a clinical psychologist at a local mental health clinic.
Lea is an avid feminist, compulsive list-maker and has a thing for gospel music. She dreams of starting a Jewish-gospel choir (perhaps at 3TL…?).
Prior to Cambridge, Lea taught Gender and Jewish Philosophy at Midreshet Ein Hanatsiv. She has also been pursuing a PhD degree in social anthropology at Hebrew University. This year she will also be a visiting graduate student at Newnham College.
