He then spent 16 years designing the national leadership programming at Teach For America, a non-profit focused on ensuring all children have the opportunity to attain an excellent education.

Having earned a doctorate in adult learning and leadership at Teachers College, Columbia University, he decided after the 2016 election that he wanted to contribute to social change through spiritual leadership. An alumnus of the New York Wexner Heritage Program, the Froman Fellowship with the New Israel Fund, and the year-long Hartman Institute Rabbinic Seminar, Andrew has been awarded the Scheuer Prize and the Tisch Fellowship as a student at HUC. He has also received the “Be Wise” Fellowship, in which he has led a team to create the Tzedek Box and Tzedek Box app, a Jewish justice journaling ritual. He lives with his partner, Mozart, in Long Island City, and is a proud uncle to two-year-old Brooklynite, Julian.
