Moti welcomes you to read his archives here.
Moti Rieber is a rabbi, writer, activist and Federation professional. He grew up in New Jersey but has been slowly moving west every since. We're thrilled that he calls Kansas home now!
He has served as Executive Director of the Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation (MKJF), located in Wichita, since August 2007. The Mid-Kansas Jewish Federation, located in Wichita, Kansas, builds, strengthens and preserves Jewish identity within the local community, in Israel and around the world through tzedakah (charity and justice), education and cultural events. Moti also serves on the Steering Committee of Kansas Interfaith Power & Light.
Prior to coming to Wichita, Moti was the rabbi of Congregation Beth Shalom in Naperville, Illinois. He is a 2004 graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College in Wyncote, Pennsylvania, where he won the 2004 Sokolow Prize for Outstanding Essay. He achieved his undergraduate degree from Rutgers in English.
Politically, Moti says that he's a "pragmatic progressive," including on issues relating to Israel. One of his favorite quotes comes from writer Anne Lamott, "You can tell you have created God in your own image when it turns out that he or she hates all the same people you do."
We're very honored that Rabbi Rieber is adding his voice to the Kansas Free Press!
