Leo Baeck College is a rabbinical college and centre for Jewish education located in north Londonmarker. As well as being the smallest academic college in England, it is also the largest Jewish Progressive University and Rabbinic College in Europe.

Named in honour of Leo Baeck, the inspirational twentieth century German Liberal rabbi, the college was founded in 1956 as a rabbinical school for training Liberal and Reform rabbis. Rabbinical ordinations from Leo Baeck are recognised worldwide by Reform, Masorti and Liberal congregations.

To date, Leo Baeck has trained over 150 rabbis, including also a majority of the small number of Masorti rabbis in the U.K.

In addition to the training of rabbis, Leo Baeck trains teachers, provides an educational consultancy, helps the development of community leaders, provides access to Jewish learning for all through interfaith work. Leo Baeck College is a degree awarding institution, specialising in Hebrew and other Jewish related subjects. The Scriptures in Dialogue project of the College is dedicated to the academic study and teaching of comparative Jewish, Christian and Islamic approaches to the interpretation of sacred scripture, from the earliest times through the medieval and classical period onwards.

Leo Baeck College is based at the Sternberg Centremarker, East End Road, in North London.
