Rabbi Matthew A. Reimer
Rabbi Reimer is excited to join the PJC family. He grew up in West Orange, NJ and has been strongly immersed in Jewish education and activities throughout his life. Ordained in 2007 by Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Rabbi Reimer previously served as the High School and Youth Programs Director of Park Avenue Synagogue in New York City and was most recently the Associate Rabbi at Congregation B’nai Jeshurun in Short Hills, NJ.
Rabbi Reimer loves to teach all ages and has focused much of his rabbinate on outreach to the 20’s and 30’s community. He believes strongly in reaching the unaffiliated, the disengaged and those who are searching. As an undergraduate at Vassar College, he majored in music. Upon graduation, he spent a year in Israel, studying, working as a musician and traveling throughout the country.
Rabbi Reimer is a member of the Israeli National Flag Football Team and is a fan of the New York Yankees, the New York Jets and the Brooklyn Nets. His wife Leah is an anesthesiology resident at the NYU Langone Medical Center. Matthew and Leah are the proud parents of three daughters, Izabel Rose, Dahlia Jane and Ayla Simone.
