Rabbi David E. Levy was installed as Assistant Rabbi of Westchester Reform Temple in Scarsdale on Friday, October 5.
Rabbi Levy was recently ordained by Hebrew Union College - Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR)in New York. He grew up in a small town in Connecticut, before attending Drexel University where he earned his BS in Information Systems, Magna Cum Laude.
While pursuing his undergraduate degree, it became clear to him that his passion lay in working with the Jewish people, and not in a cubicle. He then served as a Jewish Campus Service Corps Fellow as part of a communal engagement program, at Hillel of the University of Connecticut, before beginning his studies at HUC-JIR in 2006. Due to his passion for education, Rabbi Levy studied for an extra year, and earned an MA in Religious Education while at HUC-JIR.
Education of people of all ages has been a cornerstone of Rabbi Levy's work throughout his seminary internships. He has served at a variety of congregations, including Temple Emeth, Teaneck, NJ, the Village Temple, New York, NY, Anshe Emeth Memorial Temple, New Brunswick, NJ and most recently Temple B'nai Jeshurun of Short Hills, NJ, and was a part of the clergy and educational team at each congregation.
Rabbi Levy is overjoyed to be a part of the WRT congregational community. He is married to Kate Stambler Levy and lives in Westchester along with their infant son.
