Rabbi Felipe Goodman

Temple Beth Sholom | Las Vegas, Nevada | 46 years old
Conservative | Jewish Theological Seminary

“I have worked as Rabbi Goodman’s assistant for nine years, and he has made a huge impact on my life. I had pretty much moved away from my Jewish roots over the years, but I was convinced by a colleague to come to shul one Friday night to hear Rabbi Goodman speak — and I was hooked. He is magnetic. I have witnessed congregants that were just beside themselves with grief come talk with the rabbi and leave with smiling faces. He has a way of making people feel better about life and about themselves. He is not my grandmother’s rabbi but a rabbi for modern times, a charismatic personality with a great sense of humor, humility and empathy.”
