He earned his BA from Binghamton University in Jewish Studies with a focus in Jewish History and holds a MA in Rabbinic Literature from the American Jewish University. Today, Rabbi Jordan is happy to be back in St. Louis with his wife, Becky, and their three daughters, Daliya, Ashira, and Nessa.

When he’s not in the office, Rabbi Jordan loves going to the zoo with his kids, reading and watching movies.
