Congregation Shaaray Tefila is delighted to introduce our new Student Rabbi, Micah Friedman.
Micah Friedman is grateful to be serving the Glens Falls Jewish community this year as the student rabbi of Congregation Shaaray Tefila. Micah is a 5th-Year Student at the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College in Newton, MA where his studies have focused on drawing upon the experiences and insights of previous generations of Jews to understand and meet the circumstances of our contemporary era. Born and raised in Temple Terrace, FL, near Tampa, Micah grew up as part of intergenerational Jewish community and found an early passion for Torah study and communal prayer. Before Hebrew College, Micah studied Religion at Florida State University and spent time living, learning, and volunteering in Jerusalem. On any given day, you may find Micah tossing a softball or frisbee, pondering the meaning of pop lyrics, playing in the kitchen, cracking open a good book, or singing a niggun.
Let’s all give Micah our great Shaaray Tefila welcome as he comes onboard.
