Rabbi Scott Goldberg

Quite simply, Scott Goldberg is an exceptional young rabbi who is a perfect fit for Leo Baeck Temple. While his list of accomplishments before becoming our intern is long and impressive, it is the broad recognition that Scott has received from our own congregants that distinguishes him for this position. As so many of you have already discovered, he possesses all the gifts and instincts that we have always treasured in our rabbis. His intellect, incisiveness and conscience elevate his work as a teacher of both young and old. His soulful wisdom animates his presence as a leader of worship and spiritual practice. His deep humanity has won the trust and affection of countless temple members, whether in times of joy or moments of sorrow. His commitment to innovation and rigorous professionalism make him a rabbi our community can count on. We celebrate Scott’s rabbinic ordination, which will take place in May, and we are delighted that he has chosen to begin his new career with us.
