About Rabbi Elan Babchuck
I’m a rabbi and an entrepreneur and spend much of my time exploring the rich intersections between these two traditions, and the abundant possibilities therein. I'm committed to leaving behind a world that is more compassionate, connected, and just than the one I found, and - in pursuit of that commitment - I am the Founding Director of Glean Network, an incubator, and network for entrepreneurs who are building new models of faith in action, and Director of Innovation at Clal, a think-tank focused on the future of faith in America. I'm blessed to live and learn with my wife, Lizzie Pollock, and our three children, Micah, Nessa, and Ayla in Providence, Rhode Island. I read broadly and voraciously, cook adventurously, and find sanctuary on the rock climbing walls of New England.
