Our Seder Leader

Zachary Wiener, Rabbinical Student

Zachary Wiener is an American rabbinical student at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College, a progressive Jewish seminary in Philadelphia. An avid traveler, Zack has lived, studied, and worked in five countries in the last eight years—including graduate studies in Canada, undergraduate fieldwork in Mongolia, and limmud torah in Jerusalem. He comes to Shanghai excited to serve an East Asian WUPJ community, after experiencing Yom Kippur services at UHC in Singapore and working with emerging Jewish communities in Indonesia with Rabbi David Kunin of the Jewish Community of Japan.
In his years training for the rabbinate, Zack has focused his rabbinic work in the field of hospital and campus chaplaincy, providing pastoral care on a traumatic injuries unit  and enriching Jewish life and learning at a local university. In Jerusalem, he served as an educator and spiritual mentor for recovering addicts living in a men’s sober house. Academically, Zack is a passionate student of Zohar, Maimonidean thought, and hasidic mysticism. He is a fluent speaker of Yiddish, and will begin teaching Yiddish language courses in Philadelphia next year.
Zack anticipates ordination in the spring of 2020. He is grateful to return to East Asia to celebrate z’man cheruteinu (the Season of our Liberation) with Kehilat Shanghai!
