Q1) Where do you live?

San Diego, CA

Q2) How did you first hear of AJRCA?

I first heard about AJRCA from some colleagues who went through the program (namely Lizzie Weiss).

Q3) What was it about AJRCA that drew you to enroll here?

I love how AJRCA’s model emphasizes, “We’ll make it work!” As a full-time student and a full-time Rabbi, I knew that this journey would only work if I partnered with an institution that understood flexibility while also maintaining a high level of study.

Q4) What were you doing prior to enrolling?

While I’m enrolled at AJRCA I’m also serving as the Associate Rabbi at Congregation Beth Israel in San Diego, CA.

Q5) As you embark on this experience, what are you most excited about?

Learning from the other students!

Welcome Jeremy!
