Meet the Rabbi

Rabbi Nisan Andrews was born and raised in Canada. He attended Telshe Yeshiva in Chicago where he received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Rabbinics. While at Telshe, Rabbi Andrews developed a special relationship with its Rosh Hayeshiva, Rabbi Avrohom C. Levin zt”l, from whom he received his semicha.

Rabbi Andrews has been deeply involved in the Rabbinate and Jewish education. He taught at the Telshe Yeshiva, Akiva Academy in Calgary, and ran educational outreach programmes in both cities. This afforded Rabbi Andrews the opportunity to learn the craft from some of the most significant personalities in contemporary Jewish education and rabbinics. Additionally, he was the administrator for the local kosher supervision agency as part of his capacity as the Assistant Rabbi of Congregation House of Jacob-Mikveh Israel in Calgary where he resided for four years. He has also served as Rabbi of Lake Park Synagogue in Milwaukee.

Before moving to Allentown, Rabbi Andrews served as the Associate Rabbi of Finchley United Synagogue, a flagship congregation of the United Synagogue with over 1,800 member families. There he began innovative social and educational programming and worked tirelessly to strengthen the social engagement of its vast and broad membership.

In Allentown, Rabbi Andrews hopes to touch the lives of the members of his community and grow alongside his congregants.
