Rabbi Matt Shapiro is excited and grateful to be Temple Beth Am’s Director of Youth Learning and Engagement. Rabbi Shapiro previously served as TBA’s interim associate rabbi after six years of working full time at Beit T'shuvah. In his work at BTS, Rabbi Shapiro worked as a spiritual counselor, educator, and pulpit presence, bringing out his interests and skills as a teacher and pastor. He has worked in a variety of rabbinic and educational settings, including BCI, Mosaic Law Congregation, and Los Angeles Hebrew High School. Rabbi Shapiro looks forward to continuing to enhance and develop the wide variety of opportunities within the broad spectrum of YLE at TBA through building relationships, joy, and ruach!

Most importantly, Rabbi Shapiro is blessed to be married to Rabbi Sarah Barukh, his fantastic wife, and is the proud, grateful, and often exhausted father of Jonah, Eliav, and Rafael.
