Rabbi Andrew Markowitz
Director of Spiritual Programming
Hailing originally from Philadelphia, PA, Rabbi Andy is excited to serve the Beit T'Shuvah community as the Director of Spiritual Programming. He was ordained as a rabbi and received an MA in Jewish Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in May 2017. Having spent over 10 years working in various Jewish educational settings, Rabbi Andy has a passion for teaching Torah to help people live meaningful and enriching lives.

Rabbi Andy's Beit T'Shuvah story began when he visited BTS for an immersion in the Spring of 2014. After spending a long shabbat afternoon learning with BTS residents, he found his worldview challenged and fundamentally changed. Rabbi Andy credits the vibrancy of his current spiritual life with the Torah of recovery and Beit T'Shuvah.

His role at Beit T'Shuvah includes facilitating and organizing various spiritual and Jewish learning groups for the treatment program, serving the BTS congregation as rabbi and teacher, working with residents as a spiritual counselor, helping to organize all learning and spiritual opportunities for the larger BTS community, and working with the larger clergy team to infuse as much yiddishkeit (Jewish spirituality) as possible into all of our offerings at BTS.

Rabbi Andy comes home each day to his wonderful and supportive wife, Michelle, and adorable son, Simcha (Simmy).
