Matt Goldberg
Rabbinic Intern 

Matt Goldberg is a third year Rabbinical and Cantorial student at Hebrew College in Newton, Massachusetts. Originally from Vancouver, BC, Matt completed hisundergraduate studies at Dalhousie University in Halifax, earning a BA in English with a Minor in American History.

For the last three years, Matt has led High Holy Day services in Saint John, New Brunswick. He grew up in the Conservative movement, was an active member of United Synagogue Youth (USY) and lived in Israel after high school on the USCJ’s Nativ gap year program.

Matt bleeds blue and green for his Vancouver Canucks, and he hopes this fact will not alienate him from the Toronto community too much. When he is not busy in school or watching hockey, Matt enjoys reading a good book or practicing his trumpet. Matt is excited to learn from and contribute to the Beth Tzedec community via Zoom, and he looks forward to one day meeting everyone in person too!
