Rabbi David Spey

Temple Bat Yam welcomed Rabbi David A. Spey in July 2010, bringing a wealth of new experiences and insights to the Temple’s vibrant congregation.  Prior to joining the Bat Yam family, Rabbi Spey served seven years on the bima of Temple Beth Ami in Rockville, Md.  His previous experience includes serving as a rabbinic intern for Central Synagogue in New York City; at Temple Emanuel in Worcester, Mass.; and at Temple Beth Tikva in Wayne, N.J.

Rabbi Spey has taught and advised synagogue youth groups in a variety of synagogues in the New York metropolitan area. He was a staff member of the Joint Commission on Social Action at the Union of American Hebrew Congregations in New York City, served as a chaplain at the Hebrew Home for the Aged at Riverdale in the Bronx, and a rabbinic resident at the Community Synagogue in Rye, N.Y.  He also was a member of the Mid-Atlantic Council of the Union for Reform Judaism, Camp Harlam Advisory Group and the Washington Board of Rabbis.

Rabbi Spey received his rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion in New York City in 2003 and his undergraduate degree in Religion from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn. in 1989.  During the hiatus in his studies, he explored careers in architecture, sailing and medical research.

Rabbi Spey, his wife Dara and their children Quin (Quintin) and Ani (Eliana), are happy to be part of Temple Bat Yam’s vibrant community and make Fort Lauderdale their home.
