Rabbi Reinhart graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.S. in Anthropology and was ordained by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati in 2019. Growing up in Louisville, KY (before moving to Buffalo Grove, IL), Rabbi Reinhart’s love of Judaism blossomed at the URJ’s Goldman Union Camp Institute (GUCI) in Zionsville, IN, where he spent more than two decades as a camper, counselor, Unit Head, and, last summer, returned as the Director of Jewish Education. While in Rabbinical School, he served student pulpits in Paducah, KY and Wheeling, WV, and, for three years, he worked as the Rabbinic Intern at the Valley Temple in Wyoming, OH, leading services and Torah study, teaching adult education, and coordinating the middle school program. In addition to academics and writing a rabbinic thesis on the life and philosophy of Rabbi Mordecai M. Kaplan, Rabbi Reinhart was the Rabbinical Student Association President, was a member of both AIPAC’s Laffell Fellowship and JStreet’s Rabbinic Council, and participated in the Reform Jewish Day School Externship, Hazon’s Interdenominational Rabbinic Student Retreat, and the Former Soviet Union Pesach Project. Rabbi Reinhart is excited to be part of the Temple Israel family and to share his love of Jewish summer camp, Israel, life-long learning, and relationship building with his new Jewish community.
