Rabbi Micah Weiss received smicha from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in 2019 and immediately began working for the Thriving Communities department. He spends his days helping Reconstructionist communities with the day in and day out demands of congregational life, with a focus on supporting the sacred work of tikkun olam.

Micah was born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. where he grew up Reconstructionist at Congregation Bet Haverim. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in Religious Studies and African American Studies from Wesleyan University and was a fellow at Yeshivat Hadar for two years.

During his time as a student at RRC, Micah served as the student rabbi at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation, Congregation Kol Ami and Drexel Hillel. He also completed a unit of CPE at Lankenau Medical Center, worked for Kol Tzedek, and designed the social justice beit midrash curriculum for Repair the World.

Prior to beginning rabbinical school, Micah worked as a community organizer at the Crown Heights Community Mediation Center and as the volunteer director of Project Hayei Sarah. Micah also worked as a Jewish teen educator at J Teen Leadership and Etgar 36 and taught Jewish text classes at Hofstra University Hillel.
