Our Rabbi


Rabbi Lizz Goldstein

ואהבת לרעך כמוך

You Shall Love Your Neighbor as Yourself.

 (Leviticus 19:18)


Elizabeth (Lizz) Goldstein is a native of Branford, CT, in New Haven county. She first felt called to the rabbinate in 2004 as a participant of the URJ Kutz Camp (z"l). She completed her undergraduate studies in 2010 at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA with a concentration in genocide studies. She received her Masters in Jewish Studies from Gratz College in 2015, and ordination from the Academy of Jewish Religion in 2016. She moved to Northern Virginia to serve Ner Shalom and the surrounding community shortly following ordination.

Rabbi Lizz has been involved in many Tikkun Olam projects, was a Global Justice Fellow with American Jewish World Service, and is a member of T'ruah: the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights. She is dedicated to a career of drawing from Jewish history and values to work toward social justice, and is happy to serve the community here at Ner Shalom!
