Rabbi Jared Anstandig

Rabbi Jared Anstandig and Rabbanit Sarit Ben David

A native of West Bloomfield, Rabbi Jared Anstandig was ordained at Yeshiva University, where he also earned Bachelor’s degrees in Judaic Studies and Biblical Studies and a Master’s degree in Bible. Prior to coming to Ann Arbor, he completed rabbinic internships at the Lincoln Square Synagogue in New York, Kesher Israel in Washington,  DC, and Congregation Shaare Tefilah in New Jersey. Previously, Rabbi Anstandig taught in Talmud and Bible at Ramaz Upper School, a Modern Orthodox day school in Manhattan. Rabbi Anstandig also currently serves in the Chaplain Corps in the US Army Reserve.

In his position, Rabbi Anstandig works through Michigan Hillel, leading both the AAOM and the student Orthodox community, which hold joint services throughout the year in the Hillel building. “Ann Arbor has a small but really unique and strong Orthodox community, and I’m looking forward to being in a community where I can have a real impact,” said Rabbi Anstandig.  “I want not only to bring more people to the shul, but also to bring more shul to the people — to listen to what the community needs and wants, and to help the minyan to meet those needs.”
