Rabbi Noah Westreich
Rabbi Noah Westreich is the Based-In Rabbi for the Boston Base. In this role he creates the local Base community by hosting Shabbat dinners, justice programs, and holiday meals, and holds one-on-one conversations with participants. Noah was ordained by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York and completed the Teaching Kollel at SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva.
Noah shares SVARA’s vision of making Talmud, and the Jewish tradition in general, accessible to all who seek it. He firmly believes that the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet form the building blocks to the generative universe of the Jewish tradition. Previously, Noah served as Student Rabbi at Kolot Chayeinu/Voices of Our Lives in Brooklyn, NY and Congregation Beth Jacob in El Centro, CA. He currently lives in Boston, MA where he teaches at Boston’s Jewish Community Day School. He takes delight in guiding people toward uncovering their innate spirituality and in doing so reveals his own!
