Rabbi Julia Andelman is thrilled to be leading Yom Kippur services at Hadar for the 14th time this year. Julia was the artistic director of Pri Etz Hadar (the Hadar CD) and also recorded The Bedtime Sh'ma, a CD of Hebrew lullabies. She is the Director of Community Engagement at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where she oversees adult learning programs across North America, digital learning, continuing rabbinic education, and Prozdor. She previously served as rabbi of Congregation Shaare Zedek, director of adult education and programming at Park Avenue Synagogue, and director of the iEngage Project at the Hartman Institute of North America.

Yossi Hoffman is a current Kehilat Hadar Shamash, and he is excited to be leading services at Hadar for the tenth time. Prior to leading at Kehilat Hadar, Yossi led High Holiday services at NYU's Conservative minyan for three years, and he hopes the many Kehilat Hadar tunes he introduced at NYU have endured beyond his tenure. Yossi loves biking, has a passion for kosher, vegan, and vegetarian restaurants, and photographs his dinner way too often.

Rabbi Aviva Richman is a Rosh Yeshiva at Hadar, and has been on the faculty since 2010. A graduate of Oberlin College, she studied in the Pardes Kollel and the Drisha Scholars' Circle and was ordained by Rabbi Danny Landes. She completed a doctorate in Talmud at NYU. Interests include Talmud, Halakhah, Midrash and gender, and also a healthy dose of niggunim. 

Jeremy Tabick has been a long-time volunteer for Kehilat Hadar. He is Content Manager at Hadar Institute, where he teaches and curates and edits content—both online and in print—and Project Zug courses. Jeremy is also pursuing a PhD in Talmud at JTS. He graduated from the University of Manchester (in the UK) with a Masters in Physics, and is an alumnus of Yeshivat Hadar and the Conservative Yeshiva in Jerusalem. He lives in Riverdale with his wife, Ariella, and their three children.  

Dena Weiss is Rosh Beit Midrash at Hadar Institute, where she teaches Talmud, Midrash and Hasidut. Dena earned a BA in Religious Studies from New York University and an MA in Theology from Harvard Divinity School.
