About Jed Rich

I'm an avid fan of soul singer Sam Cooke and comedian Mel Brooks, whose movie, “Robin Hood: Men in Tights,” I can recite virtually verbatim. I moved back to the Bay Area from Tel Aviv, where I explored how Jewish ethics can inform social action at BINA Secular Yeshiva, the Museum of the Jewish People, and the Center for the Blind. Previously, I worked as an attorney in a nationwide pro bono case on behalf of U.S. military veterans who served in the Cold War era. As males in my family have been singing since Russia was czarist (some say it still is), I will hog the microphone at karaoke. I am the only known living person to have completed the Counter Burger Challenge. I combine my interests in Judaism, ethics, and global social justice to engage graduate students and young professionals in Silicon Valley as ENGAJ manager with Oshman JCC and Hillel at Stanford.
