Rabbi Moshe Schwartz's Bio

Rabbi Moshe Schwartz has been Head of School at Krieger Schechter Day School since 2015. He previously served as Head of School at the preschool-8th grade Kellman Brown Academy in Voorhees, New Jersey.  He holds a BA, cum laude, from Brandeis University and received Rabbinic ordination and an MA in Jewish Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary in 2007.  From 2007-2010, “Rabbi Moshe” as he is known, served as the Director of Jewish Life and Rabbi-in-Residence at the K-12 Schechter Long Island where he was the recipient of the prestigious SREL Fellowship.  He is a graduate of the Day School Leadership Training Institute and has completed two programs at the Principal’s Center at the Harvard Graduate School of Education: Art of Leadership and Leadership as an Evolving Vision.

Rabbi Moshe served on the advisory board of the Schechter Network and on the board of the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools. He has served as vice-chair and chair of decennial accreditations on behalf of the association.
During his tenure at Kellman Brown Academy, the school became the first Jewish day school in the nation to receive the prestigious U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Award having passed not only the requirements of the US Green Building Council for LEED Certification, but also the many curricular requirements necessary to receive this award. KBA was honored by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan for this achievement in July 2014. 

Rabbi Moshe and his wife Aviva, who works at The Associated, have 3 children; Eliezer, who goes by Elie (7th), Liba (5th) and Rina (3rd). Rabbi Moshe is a lifelong New York Jets and Mets fan but asks that you not hold this against him as he has been searching for more productive franchises to root for.
