Jeremy Markiz received rabbinic ordination from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles, California in 2016. He grew up in Portland, OR and attended the University of Oregon.
Now an ordained Conservative/Masorti Rabbi, he lives in Pittsburgh where he seeks to explore how, through the lens of Torah, we can inspire justice, love of all people, and build healthy and meaningful relationships with each other and God. He believes that Judaism and Torah have the power to make us better human beings when we bring all of ourselves to engage with tough questions and the world around us.
In his spare time, Jeremy loves to run, hike, read, and listen to way too many podcasts.
He currently serves as the Director of Derekh and Youth Tefillah at Congregation Beth Shalom.
