As the Associate Rabbi of Temple Micah, Rabbi Josh Beraha spends his time pondering ways to develop and sustain a culture of radical passion for Jewish identity. Rabbi Beraha has a BA in History and Hebrew Literature from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MA in Education through the New York City Teaching Fellows Program. He spent five years teaching students with special needs at a public school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In rabbinical school at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Beraha was awarded the prestigious Bonnie and Daniel Tisch Rabbinical Fellowship which brought him to Temple Micah as an intern in 2012. He was ordained in 2014 and moved to Micah full time. When he’s not at Temple Micah you can find him running around town with his wife Nani, and their three very loud and lively children – Raphael, Maya, and Lily – listening to music, brewing fancy coffee, and searching for the city’s best bread.
