Rabbi Robert Goldstein

Adjunct Professor of Religious and Theological Studies

Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations

Rabbi Robert Goldstein is recognized as one of the leading religious leaders in the Merrimack Valley. He has served Temple Emanuel of Andover since 1990, where he has helped the congregation become a vibrant, multi-generational community. While he retired as Chairman of the Center’s Board in 2010, he remains as an adjunct professor of religious and theological studies at Merrimack, he writes op-ed articles for many local publications, and he hosts the local cable access show, “Faith Matters.” In 2001, Rabbi Goldstein initiated a Muslim/Jewish dialogue which has become a model for other communities, and in June of the same year he was presented with the Tikkun Olam Award (to heal the world) by Merrimack College in honor of his many interfaith efforts.
