Hillel at Dartmouth is soaring to new heights! For example, 70 students come to Shabbat Dinner every week, and 30 more come out on Saturday afternoons to learn and build community.

Rabbi Seth’s calling is to motivate and empower Dartmouth students from all backgrounds in their journeys as human beings created in the Divine Image. He leads with vision, teaches with passion and communicates actively. In cultivating community, Rabbi Seth guides a full slate of learning, social action, social and Shabbat and holiday offerings at Hillel.  In promoting mental health and wellness, he is devotedly available to provide pastoral counseling to students.

Rabbi Seth brings with him two decades of educational experience heading both Jewish day schools and a non-sectarian International Baccalaureate school serving rural, low-income students. Rabbi Seth’s first career was as partner in charge of the Technology Transactions Group at Barnes & Thornburg, an AmLaw 100 law firm. At the same time, he taught management courses at the Mendoza Graduate School of Business at Notre Dame. 

He earned a BA in mathematics from NYU, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. a JD from Stanford Law School, and rabbinic ordination from Kollel Tal Torah Yoka in New York. He is a doctoral candidate at USC’s Rossier Graduate School of Education. Rabbi Seth was in the third cohort of the Day School Leadership Training Institute of the Davidson Graduate School of Education - Jewish Theological Seminary in New York.
