Rabbi Rob Scheinberg, PhD


Rabbi Dr. Rob Scheinberg serves as Rabbi-in-Residence at AJR, and as the rabbi at the United Synagogue of Hoboken, New Jersey, a vibrant urban synagogue right outside of Manhattan.  He combines his passion for Jewish communal leadership with a love for the study of Jewish liturgy, teaching courses in liturgy for many years at AJR and at the Jewish Theological Seminary, where he was ordained and received his Ph.D. He has served on the editorial committees for the Lev Shalem series of prayerbooks published by the Rabbinical Assembly, as well as the Committee on Jewish Law and Standards, among other leadership roles in the Jewish community and beyond. Rob loves playing guitar and piano, and throughout his adult life he has rarely gone a week without leading at least one choir rehearsal.
