Rabbi Yonatan Arnon

I aspire to instill a sense of meaning, belonging, and hope in your life. Perhaps what we share as seekers is to be nomads. Each one of us follows their own path. Our individual journeys might be different, yet we can walk alongside one another on a shared path. Walk with me?

My Story

Ordained as a Rabbi by Hebrew Union College in May 2023.

Graduated with an MBA in social entrepreneurship and nonprofit management from the Morton Mandel Social Leadership Program at Ben Gurion University in 2018.

I am currently residing in New York and work as a Chaplain Resident at Columbia New York Presbyterian Hospital, as a spiritual and business consultant to individuals and to non-profits and lead MoveMeant workshops.

I also continue to volunteer as a spiritual guide with incarcerated young adults in Rikers Jail.


For the past ten years, I have served Jewish communities in New York and Israel, including Columbia/Barnard Hillel, Romemu, Lab/Shul, Navah Tehila, Beth Emeth Albany, JDC Entwine and Kehilat Zion with a focus on Jewish & Hebrew education, community building for young adults and alumni, program direction, facilitating rituals, prayer services, and more.


I am a trained dialogue facilitator, working for over 10 years with multicultural groups including Jews, Palestinians, Christians and Zen Buddhists.

In 2017, I founded my signature "MoveMeant - Embodying Sacred Texts" workshops where I integrate spiritual and movement practices. MoveMeant reimagines what is possible within ritual spaces regardless of spiritual affiliation. MoveMeant explores the intersection of sacred and ancestral texts, ritual, live music, mindfulness, breath, and vocal exercises as well as movement techniques.

I was raised in Jerusalem, Israel, and today reside in Manhattan.
