Rabbi Greg Weisman

Rabbi Greg Weisman has served Temple Beth El since 2013. An educator at heart, Rabbi Weisman has centered his work around teaching and developing relationships across the congregation, bringing a renewed passion for Jewish life and community. He is actively engaged in our Early Learning Center, Religious School, and adult education programming, as well as the Temple’s Brotherhood. He has lead the congregation towards becoming a more diverse and inclusive community, having created a Racial Equity Leadership Team and an LGBTQ+ Task Force within the congregation. The racial equity initiative is an outgrowth of his work with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (the RAC), where he served as a Balfour Brickner Clergy Fellow and current serves on the leadership team of RAC-Florida. He has guided the congregation in learning opportunities, building relationships with local communities of color, and lead a Civil Rights Journey through the Deep South.

In recognition of his work with the LGBTQ+ community, Rabbi Weisman was asked to be a contributor to Mishkan Ga’avah Where Pride Dwells: A Celebration of LGBTQ Jewish Life and Ritual, and served on the book’s editorial advisory committee. He also is an 18Doors Rukin Rabbinic Fellow, focusing on supporting interfaith families within the Jewish community. He has also written for the Union for Reform Judaism’s Ten Minutes of Torah.

He currently serves as the president of the Palm Beach County Board of Rabbis, on the board of Ruth and Norman Rales Jewish Family Services, and on the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Palm Beach regional board, and is an active member of the Boca Raton Interfaith Clergy Association.

Rabbi Weisman was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) in Los Angeles, and is a cum laude graduate of Boston University. Before entering rabbinical school, Rabbi Weisman served as an Education Fellow at the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life in Jackson, Mississippi, working with congregations across the South to develop their educational programming.
