Jesse believes camp should be a safe and fun environment that nourishes a child and inspires our youth to grow (not so different from our mission). Previously, he was the assistant director of a day camp in Minnesota, and has been a youth professional in Colorado, Florida, Israel, Washington D.C., Virginia, and New York. Jesse has also served as faculty at URJ’s 6 Points Sports Academy and Camp Harlam for 8 summers. Prior to joining Camp Pinebrook, Jesse was a congregational rabbi for 9 years. He has an ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, and bachelor degree from the University of Denver. He is currently studying for an MBA at SUNY Oswego. Jesse enjoys cooking, sports, travel, and spending time with his husband, Rabbi Andrew Goodman, and their twin sons, Parker and Holden (who are excited to attend Camp Pinebrook).
