As growing numbers of Jews have become disengaged with the religion of their birth, Rabbi Baruch HaLevi offers a proactive response for reengaging Jews, reclaiming Judaism, and reviving the Jewish community. A dynamic speaker on Judaism, spirituality, and building inclusive communities of faith, Rabbi B is the spiritual leader of the Shirat Hayam congregation, one of the fastest growing synagogues in Greater Boston.
Rabbi B is a passionate writer whose first book, Revolution of Jewish Spirit: How to Revive Ruakh in Your Spiritual Life, Transform Your Synagogue & Inspire Your Jewish Community, co-authored with Ellen Frankel, offers methods of reviving Jewish spiritual centers, federations, Jewish community centers, Jewish institutions, and synagogues that serve as the heart of the Jewish tradition. He is also an avid yoga practitioner and currently serves as the spiritual consultant for Zuzzim, a new start-up that works to make Judaism affordable and accessible to all.
Ultimately, Rabbi Baruch HaLevi is committed to reclaiming an inspired form of Judaism, fostering an inclusive Jewish community, and building bridges between the Jewish community and its Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, and secular brothers and sisters - whomever they are, wherever they are.
Rabbi B attended the University of Kansas where he received a BA in philosophy. Upon graduation, he spent a year working in New York City as a motivational speaker. Shortly thereafter, he decided to formally resume his spiritual and academic pursuits and moved to Israel where he began his Judaic studies, first at Livnot and later at the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem. In 1997, he entered rabbinical school at the Ziegler School of Rabbinical Studies, University of Judaism in Los Angeles, California.
Rabbi B spent five years as a rabbinic intern at Ohr HaTorah synagogue in Los Angeles under the guidance of his mentor, Rabbi Mordecai Finley. In 2002, he accepted a position at Tifereth Israel, a synagogue in Des Moines, Iowa, where he and his wife Ariela spent four years reinvigorating and reenergizing the historic congregation.
Rabbi B moved to Swampscott, Massachusetts, in the summer of 2006 to begin his tenure at Congregation Shirat Hayam, a newly created synagogue crafted out of the merger of two previous congregations. CSH is now a vibrant, flourishing center of Jewish community, education, and spirituality.
In February 2007, Rabbi B received his doctoral degree in ministry with an emphasis in Jewish spirituality from the Graduate Theological Foundation of Oxford University.
