Meet rabbi Lipton

Beth El Congregation is thrilled to welcome Rabbi Jeremy Lipton as its new spiritual leader.

   Rabbi Jeremy Lipton has more than 25 years of experience as a Rabbi, Hazzan, educator and Jewish community leader in Conservative congregations in Los Angeles, San Antonio, and Toulouse, France.  During his recent tenure in Minneapolis, he served as the Head of School for Talmud Torah, a community-wide Jewish school.  Rabbi Lipton is excited about this new chapter in his life.  He especially looks forward to becoming “immersed in a tight-knit Jewish community, where clergy have the opportunity to really get to know their members on a personal, interactive level, allowing them to be engaged in every aspect of their lives.”
   Rabbi Lipton received his rabbinic ordination from the Academy of Jewish Religion in Yonkers, New York. He received his cantorial commission from the Cantors Assembly of the Jewish Theological Seminary. Rabbi Lipton also holds a master’s degree in Jewish
studies, as well as both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in music. Rabbi Lipton‘s wife Kay is a Musicologist. They have two sons – Jonathan, who lives in Los Angeles, and Adam, who lives in Austin, Texas.

Series #3: The Roots of Conservative Judaism 
Tuesdays, December 7, 14, 21 @8:00pm

Chancellor Shuly Rubin Schwartz - Conservative Judaism: Origins, History, Assets and Opportunities                  Conservative Judaism provided a compelling vision for a Judaism—traditional in orientation and embracing of evolutionary change—that captured the hearts and minds of so many twentieth century American Jews. What were its origins? Why/how did JTS serve as its incubator and disseminator? And why am I convinced that Conservative Judaism is well poised to meet the religious needs of North American Jews in the current moment?
