DayTimers Speaker Series: Rabbi Jason Nevarez “The Rabbi’s Lens: A Personal Journey Through the Promised Land”
Thursday, January 21 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pmFree
Join us as Beth Israel’s Senior Rabbi, Rabbi Jason Nevarez, takes on a virtual journey of his favorite places in Israel – from historical to the cultural adventure and beyond.
Originally from New York City, Rabbi Nevarez graduated from the Bronx High School of Science, and went to the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where he received his BA in 1998. He was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York in 2006, where he earned Master’s degrees in both Hebrew Literature and Religious Education, and was the recipient of a number of scholarships, in addition to several academic prizes in Jewish education. Rabbi Nevarez held residencies and internships at Larchmont Temple, Larchmont, NY, Temple Beth Emeth, Ann Arbor, MI, and at Temple Shaaray Tefila, Bedford NY, where he served for the past 17 years. Prior to entering Rabbinical School, he served as a Youth Director at synagogues in Connecticut and Michigan, and also as a Regional Director for NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth).
As part of his congregational portfolio, Rabbi Nevarez has had the opportunity to do outreach, educational, and social justice work both in Israel and Latin America. He has also been able to marry his global learning experiences with his passion for innovation and immersive learning/education across the generations he serves. He continues to help foster a congregation of learners and enjoys working closely with families in individual/family pastoral counseling. He continues to serve as a mentor for Rabbinical students at HUC-JIR, the Reform Movement’s Flagship Seminary, helping them to enhance their Rabbinic skill sets while serving as rabbinic interns for congregations.
Rabbi Nevarez lives in Carmel Valley with his wife, Nicole, his partner and lifelong friend, and their two children, Ethan and Sophie.
