Josh Greenbaum has spent his entire career holding various roles in the non-profit and educational worlds. After studying at The George Washington University in Washington, DC, Josh began his career at a private residential boarding school for students with disabilities, working in classrooms and spending time in the behavioral services department. In 2008, Josh left to accept a position at Temple Har Shalom as Vice Principal of the Religious School where he helped manage over 400 students in kindergarten through twelfth grades. In that role, Josh developed curriculum, managed over 30 teachers and helped to run administrative aspects of the school. In 2013, Josh accepted a promotion to the role of Program Director and began directing aspects of the organization’s messaging and communications, creating and implementing global goals and objectives and executing large-scale projects including programmatic, educational and fundraising strategies.
In January 2015, Josh helped found, open and direct The Orchard Academy at Camp Harmony, growing the preschool from its original 5 students to over 125 when acquired in spring of 2019 by Temple Har Shalom and becoming the present-day TOA@MTS. Through that experience, as well as his over 20 years as an administrator and director at the since-closed Camp Harmony day camp, Josh has become a staunch believer in the power of children, dynamic teams, open communication, and constructive conversations, all to help schools and organizations continually meet their potentials.
Beginning in July 2023, and with the full support of the Temple Har Shalom community, Josh assumed the role of Student Rabbi at Har Shalom as he takes the next step on his rabbinic school journey and semicha, rabbinic ordination.
Josh lives around the corner in Warren with his wife Elyse (a licensed clinical school social worker), their daughters Shiloh and Ayla, and their golden retriever Juno. They enjoy traveling, neighborhood foodie finds and skiing, with Josh still maintaining his PSIA ski instructor certification after teaching for over a decade.
