MORE ABOUT RABBI ANDY GREEN
 
Rabbi Green lives in Voorhees, NJ with his wife, Charlene, and his two boys Archer and Beck (ages 8 and 5). Currently an Associate Rabbi at Congregation Beth El where he has worked for the past 6 years, Rabbi Green and his family are looking to move west as Charlene's family is from Las Vegas and his family is in California. Because of the pandemic, they have realized that they want to be closer to their families.
 
The search committee has performed extensive reference checks, ranging from current and past synagogue leadership, to clergy, to current and former congregants, and we have been very impressed with the feedback we have received. We have also had the opportunity to meet with Rabbi Green on a number of separate occasions, and the experiences we have had with him have been unanimously very positive.
