Originally from New York City, Rabbi Roy Feldman is excited to serve the Jewish community of his state’s capital. He earned his undergraduate degree in Linguistics and History at Columbia University and studied at Yeshivat Petach Tikva in Israel. After that, Rabbi Feldman received rabbinic ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary and from Rabbi Zalman Nechemia Goldberg of Jerusalem, as well as an MA in Jewish Philosophy from the Bernard Revel Graduate School. Prior to joining CBAJ, he was Assistant Rabbi at Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun in Manhattan and taught Judaic studies at the Ramaz Upper School, where he received rabbinic training and mentoring from Rabbi Haskel Lookstein. He is married to Rachel Minkin and they are the proud parents of Charlotte.
Rabbi Feldman believes that a rabbi’s primary role in the twenty-first century is to articulate, embody, and exemplify the reasons why traditional Judaism remains relevant today. Some of Rabbi Feldman’s teaching can be found on YU Torah.Email
