Rabbi Maya Glasser

Rabbi Maya Glasser (rabbiglasser@thetemplejax.org) was ordained from the New York campus of Hebrew Union-College Jewish Institute of Religion in 2018 with their first-ever Certificate in Pastoral Care & Counseling. Some of her favorite parts of being a rabbi are meeting and connecting with congregants of all ages, learning and growing through classes, prayer, and rituals, and striving to make our ancient texts new again. Rabbi Glasser is a member of the CCAR (Central Conference of American Rabbis) and the WRN (Women’s Rabbinic Network). She is pleased to be a part of the CCAR Committee on Worship and Practice and the Editorial Board of their upcoming Mourning App. Rabbi Glasser was married to Jake Bayer (z”l). In her free time, she loves listening to show tunes, enjoying her cats Moses and Aaron, and praying for the New York Mets.
