    Shalom! I am Jeremy Gimbel, a third-year rabbinic student at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) and Congregation Kol Ami's student rabbi. I am so excited to take all of my experiences and use the to teach and learn with the Kol Ami community.

    I grew up at Congregation Beth Israel in San Diego and was very active in my synagogue's youth group, an affiliate of NFTY (North American Federation of Temple Youth, the Reform Jewish youth group). I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in political science and religious studies, although my real passion is in Jewish education. Before coming to HUC-JIR, I was the Youth Director back at CBI in San Diego, where I was in charge of running three youth groups for kids in grades 4-12, song leading in the religious school and also helped start a Jewish community 20-30s group. I spent the past year as the Student Rabbi at Congregation Beth Israel in Redding, CA, as well as the cantorial soloist for Congregation Kol Ami.
    In addition to my more "traditional" Jewish experiences, I am also an amateur photographer, videographer, and musician. I have released three albums of original Jewish music, most recently a project of Jewish gospel music called "Neshama Yetera." During my first year of Rabbinical School, I wrote/directed/produced a Purim shpiel featuring classmates that went viral (at least in our little Jewish community :)) called "The Book of Purim," a parody of the Broadway musical, "The Book of Mormon."  
    Jeremy is married to Sarah Gimbel, a postdoctoral fellow at USC (starting in August: "and is the proud father of Baby Boy Gimbel" will be ready to be included by then!).
