Rabbi Jonathan Kraus
Jonathan Kraus has served as the rabbi of Beth El Temple Center in Belmont since 1994. Among his favorite parts of being a rabbi are teaching Judaism, working with interfaith couples, and sharing the journeys of individuals who are considering becoming Jewish. Rabbi Kraus has been teaching “Introduction to Judaism” and “Taste of Judaism” classes for over 20 years. He loves the way every class creates a wonderful and unique community, bringing its own questions, interests, passions, and curiosity to the exploration of the beautiful, rich and sometimes challenging heritage that is Judaism.
