"Tikkun Adam(ah): A Jewish Response to a World in Upheaval"

Rabbi Nate DeGroot is the Associate Director and the Spiritual and Program Director at Hazon Detroit, the Jewish lab for sustainability.  

In this role he is helping the metro Detroit Jewish community to reconnect with their own earth-based Jewish roots, while striving for greater sustainability as individuals and organizations, and reinvesting in their historic relationship with the Detroit community through its transformative Black and Native-led food and environmental justice work.  Additionally, Rabbi DeGroot works part-time as a congregational rabbi for Temple Beth Israel in Jackson, MI and Congregation Beth Israel in Flint, MI.

Rabbi DeGroot was ordained at Hebrew College in Boston in 2016, where he also received a Master’s in Jewish Education.  Most recently he served as the inaugural Jewish Emergent Network Rabbinic Fellow at IKAR, a progressive Jewish spiritual community in Los Angeles.  Prior to that, DeGroot founded a grassroots cooperative Jewish community in Portland, OR, known as Mikdash.

Rabbi DeGroot and his wife, Rebecca, live in Detroit and are excited to be putting down roots in the city.
