JTA Twitter 50: Rabbi Josh Yuter


Rabbi Josh Yuter @JYuter

A former congregational rabbi from New York, Yuter immigrated to Israel several years ago and entered the country’s tech sector, where he works as a programmer.

Unlike most other rabbis, he has cultivated a following of over 50,000 on the platform — thanks to his daily mix of snark, social commentary, puns and threads on the Talmud and Jewish theology.

A moderate who likes to point out the foibles and hypocrisy of religious and political extremists on all sides, Yuter seasons his critiques with a touch of wit that takes the sting out of what could otherwise sound strident or angry. He also frequently interacts with users from across the political and denominational spectrum who came for the puns and stayed for the intellectual rigor.
