Greg Hersh has always been a spiritual seeker. He’s asked big questions while double majoring in religion at George Washington University, living in a Buddhist monastery in Southeast Asia, learning Native American philosophy and survival skills, and studying Jewish texts in Jerusalem.
After six years of growth, discovery, study, and intensive training at RRC, Greg is about to become an ordained rabbi. Starting Aug. 1, Greg will be bringing his dynamic leadership to Temple Emanuel of Wakefield, a Boston-area congregation that affiliated with the Reconstructionist movement in 2012.
Greg is eager to go “from strength to strength” going from a life-changing six years at RRC to begin a new life in Boston. He is looking forward to helping congregants grow as individuals and as a community.
“I am looking forward to bringing all my experiences, talents and interests to this New England community,” he said.
Wicked Local Wakefield, a website covering the community, recently reported on Greg’s hiring. Check out the piece here.
