Rabbi Getzel Davis
Rabbi at Zivug, Unorthodox Celebrations, Harvard Hillel, and a Harvard University Chaplin
Rabbi Getzel is trying to answer this question: How do we live meaningful and ethical lives in this post-modern, high-stress, computerized world? While he hasn’t yet resolved the question, many of the clues he has found are in gems of ancient Jewish wisdom. Rabbi Getzel received his Bachelor’s Degree from Brandeis University and his rabbinical ordination from Rabbinical School of Hebrew College where he also received a Masters in Jewish Education. Rabbi Getzel works as a rabbi and educator at Harvard Hillel and also as an Harvard University Chaplain, where much of his work is to engage unobservant students. He is also the adviser for the Conservative Minyan, teaches regular classes, and counsels students, faculty, and community members.
