Rabbi Greg Kanter was ordained from the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion upon completion of his studies in Jerusalem and Cincinnati, Ohio in 1993. As a rabbinical student, Rabbi Kanter worked for the HUC-JIR Dean of Admissions and friend to KKBE, Rabbi Gary Zola, as the Director of Youth Programs and Special Assistant to the Dean of Admissions. He also worked as a rabbinic intern for congregations in Lafayette, LA, Jackson, TN and Natchez, MS. His Rabbinic thesis was entitled “From Jerusalem a Remnant Shall Go Out: The Siege of Jerusalem in Biblical Times and the Twentieth Century.” He still has a fondness for biblical and American Jewish history.
Before settling in Charleston, Rabbi Kanter moved with his family from S. Florida where he served at Temple Sinai in Delray Beach. Rabbi Kanter was a member of the Palm Beach County Board of Rabbis, worked with Israel Bonds and the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation where he helped to register new potential life-saving donors and was also a donor match. Rabbi Kanter grew up active in NFTY and Reform Judaism’s summer camp movement and still loves advising and supporting today’s Jewish youth. Rabbi Kanter joins us with his husband Mike and their daughters, Emily and Alayna.
