Rabbi Nathan Martin

Former Director of Student Life, RRC

Rabbi Nathan Martin, ’06, served as  director of student life at RRC from 2010-2017, providing support to students and coordinates programming and community building at the College.

He served as assistant director of the University of Michigan (U-M) Hillel for four years before coming to work at RRC. Prior to entering the rabbinate, Martin already had a strong interest in intercultural affairs; he spent a year living and working in Cairo, Egypt before earning a Masters of Arts degree in international relations, with a concentration on Middle East studies, from Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, Martin spent nearly 10 years working in the field of energy efficiency policy as a researcher and policy analyst, developing a focus on industrial-energy efficiency. He has been able to integrate these passions into his rabbinate by developing innovative Jewish-Muslim programming at the U-M; teaching and exploring the connections between Judaism and environmental sustainability; and integrating these values into his life by working to reduce his carbon footprint.
