Education Director

Rabbi Jonah Rank

Rabbi Jonah Rank, the Director of KHN’s Shul School, is excited to share with those around him his excitement for Jewish learning.

Rabbi Jonah earned an MA in Jewish Thought and was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2015. An award-winning Jewish songwriter, he, as an undergrad, studied Music at Columbia University and Jewish Music at JTS. During four summers of Rabbinical School, he created innovative Jewish educational spaces in Waltham, MA, at BIMA, a pluralistic Jewish program for creative high schoolers.

Rabbi Jonah taught Jewish Studies in the Solomon Schechter School of Manhattan’s Middle School before serving as the Maskil (“Teacher-of-Tradition”) at the Shaar Shalom Synagogue in Halifax, NS, where he facilitated adult educational offerings, led musical services, taught beney mitzvah students, and collaborated with the community’s Education Committee in rebooting the Halifax Joint Hebrew School. 

Rabbi Jonah lives in Yardley, PA, where he (together with his spouse, Rabbi Dr. Raysh Weiss) loves to spend time with the Weiss-Rank children. Rabbi Jonah enjoys writing and editing for a variety of Jewish educational, academic, and liturgical projectsincluding Siddur Kanfey HaShekhinah, a forthcoming (mostly) traditional Ashkenazic Hebrew prayer-book where the language referring to God is (almost) entirely feminine. Rabbi Jonah also enjoys comedy and ice cream.
