Rabbi David Katz began his tenure as intentional interim rabbi of Temple Sinai on July 1, 2023.

Katz was ordained in 1981 and received a Doctor of Divinity degree from Hebrew Union College in 2006. He has served in rabbinical and academic roles for more 40 years, the last 12 as an interim rabbi, most recently at Temple Concord in Syracuse, N.Y. and B’nai Sholom Reform Congregation in Albany.

He has written numerous articles and is the co-author of “Reading Between the Lines: New Stories from the Bible.” He served on committees that developed Mishkan T”filah, the newest Reform Judaism prayer book, published in 2007 and used widely throughout North America.

Katz is one of the pioneer practitioners of the interim rabbi program. Temple Sinai will be his 10th interim posting.
