Bible
Shavua Tov @ Schechter
Theology

Does God make mistakes? In Parshat Noah, the flood confronts us with a disturbing story of God destroying the world. Rabbi Avi Novis-Deutsch, Dean of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary, explores that something that seems so wrong impacts our reading of the Torah text.

Avi Novis-Deutsch is presently the Dean of the Schechter Rabbinical Seminary. Ordained as a Masorti rabbi by the SRS in 2003, Rabbi  Novis-Deutsch also has an MA in Jewish Studies from JTS. He served for nine years as a pulpit rabbi at two Masorti congregations in Israel, most recently, at Haminyan Hamishpachti Masorti Kfar Veradim. Rabbi Novis-Deutsch also worked for two years as a Jewish educator in Berkeley and in the Bay Area, California.  He is married to Dr. Nurit Novis-Deutsch. They and their three children live on Kibbutz Hanaton.
