Rabbi Fred Greene is a community partner striving to make Congregation Har HaShem a dynamic, inclusive, inspiring Reform congregation in the Boulder County area. He aspires to provide a ‘brave space’ for those looking to connect or reconnect to Judaism and Jewish community. As religious life seems out of touch or irrelevant to some, Rabbi Greene’s goal is to help make our Jewish experiences meaningful and compelling, all the while helping us reclaim faith, hope, and our own prophetic, moral voice.
Rabbi Greene has served congregations in New York, Connecticut, and Georgia and is an active member of the Central Conference of American Rabbis. He was ordained in 2001 from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR), has a Master’s from HUC-JIR in Hebrew Literature, and a B.A. from Hofstra University in New York. Currently, he is pursuing the degree of Doctor of Ministry in Prophetic Leadership from Iliff School of Theology in Denver. Rabbi Greene and his wife, Deborah, have raised up three daughters — Yael, Leora, and Noa — incredible young women who are finding their own way in the world.
