Rabbi Adrian Gottfried

Rabbi Adrian Gottfried has served since 1997 as Senior Rabbi at Comunidade Shalom in São Paulo, an egalitarian, pluralistic and inclusive synagogue and, with over 500 families, one of the most dynamic congregations in Brazil. From 2006 to 2010, Rabbi Adrian served as President of the Latin American Rabbinical Assembly and was the director of the Abarbanel Institute Sao Paulo. Author of several books, several siddurim and machzorim and many published articles, Rabbi Adrian received his rabbinic ordination in 1990 from the Seminario Rabínico Latinoamericano, an MA in Jewish Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 1993, and a BA and MA in Sociology from the University of Buenos Aires. He attended the prestigious Educators Graduate Program at the Melton Center for Jewish Education at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and continued his educational leadership training at the Leatid program in Argentina. Rabbi Adrian’s vocation is directly linked to the figure of his mentor, Rabbi Marshall T. Meyer z’l, the rabbi who faced the military dictatorship in Argentina. It was Rabbi Marshall who taught Rabbi Adrian that it was possible, in his own words: “”to have one hand in the Torah and another in the newspaper of the day.””
