Rabbi David Novak


Rabbi David Novak is serving as Temple Sinai’s rabbi and spiritual leader, a position he has held since July 2020.  

A native of Manchester, New Hampshire, Rabbi David fell in love with Judaism as a young child, always finding it a stabilizing presence in his life.  He received his rabbinic ordination in 2007 from the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles.  He served his first decade as rabbi of Israel Congregation of Manchester, an unaffiliated congregation in Manchester Center, Vermont.  In 2018 he left New England for Florida where he served two congregations as an interim rabbi. 

He has always been active in Jewish communal life.  From 1989-2007 the rabbi lived in Los Angeles where he was a lay-leader at Temple Beth Am’s Library Minyan and Beth Chayim Chadashim.  He was principal of a successful communications consulting concern working for private, non-profit and government entities.  

Rabbi David has a “please bother the rabbi” policy which  invites you to please “bother him.”  He would like to know you.
