Rabbi Andrue Kahn

Rabbi Andrue (Andy) Kahn began his journey to the rabbinate (unbeknownst to himself) while majoring in religious studies at Kenyon College in Ohio, where he also spent a year studying at Ben Gurion University in Beer Sheva and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He continued his studies with an MA in Religion and Modernity at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, and an MA from the Jewish Theological Seminary in Hebrew Bible in Manhattan.

He then received smicha in 2018 after five years of study at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. After ordination, he served as associate rabbi at Congregation Emanu-El of the City of New York until 2023, and now serves as the associate director of Yachad and adult education at Congregation Beth Elohim in Park Slope.

His edited volume The Sacred Earth: Jewish Perspectives on our Planet, was published in June 2023 by CCAR Press. Rabbi Andy's rabbinate is driven by the desire to make Judaism accessible and meaningful to people of all backgrounds and viewpoints, and to continue the traditional evolution of Jewish practice as our world continues rapidly training.
