Rabbi David N. Young is thrilled to be our new rabbi. He comes to our community with a wealth of youth, teaching, camping, and pulpit experience. He has served congregations in North Miami Beach, New York City, Alaska, Ohio, North Carolina, and has taught middle school, high school, and adults. In addition, Rabbi Young spent two summers at the Reform movement’s Crane Lake Camp in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts, and four summers at Camp Coleman in Cleveland, Georgia. While living in Miami, he served as a chaplain for the North Miami Beach Police Department and sat on the Advisory Board of the Association for Jewish Special Education.
He grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he was very active in his theatre troupe and in B'nai Brith Youth Organization. He received a B.A. in Theatre from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. Pursuing his love for acting, he moved to Los Angeles, only to discover that his love for Judaism was stronger. Rabbi Young brings all of his passionate commitment to Jewish life to our youth, educational and spiritual programming, and he looks forward to a great many new and innovative programs at CBT over the coming years.
Rabbi Young is married to Cantor Natalie Young and they are the proud parents of three children: Gabriel, Alexander, and Isabella. Off the bimah, he enjoys cooking for his family, and brewing beer for his friends. Rabbi Young posts regularly to his blog.
