    Rabbi Evan Goodman is the Executive Director of Santa Barbara Hillel. He loves working with college students and Santa Barbara Hillel supporters to create a dynamic “Jewish home away from home” where we explore Judaism, engage our Jewish values in the community around us, and enrich the lives of our students. He is proactive in standing up for SB Hillel's students, building bridges, and fostering a positive campus climate.

    An avid hiker, Rabbi Evan can often be found on local trails - or taking a getaway to Yosemite or Tahoe. He's a big fan of the San Francisco Giants. Rabbi Evan and his wife Lori are the proud parents of two sons, Ilan and Noah. Before arriving at Santa Barbara Hillel in July 2009, Rabbi Evan served for 16 years as a congregational rabbi in San Francisco and San Mateo, California, and in New Rochelle, New York.

    Rabbi Goodman’s honors include Hillel International’s 2015 Richard M. Joel “Exemplar of Excellence Award” and AIPAC's 2014 “Ally of the Year” award for his “Accomplishments on Behalf of the U.S.-Israel Relationship on Campus.” Rabbi Goodman currently serves as Treasurer of the Executive Board of the Pacific Association of Reform Rabbis, a member of the Regional Advisory Board of Santa Barbara ADL, and a member of the Taubman Symposia Program Committee.

    A graduate of Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Cincinnati, Ohio, Rabbi Evan was ordained in 1993. He received a Master of Arts in Hebrew Letters from HUC-JIR in 1991, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of California, Berkeley in 1988.

    Rabbi Evan Goodman is pleased to lead our wonderful staff at Santa Barbara Hillel as we inspire the Jewish future.
