Rev. Jude Geiger

Over the past thirty years, Rev. Jude has served in numerous leadership roles in our faith at the local, regional and continental level. Previously, he served as the Senior Minister for the UU Fellowship in Huntington, NY, and the First UU Congregation in Brooklyn, NY as Minister of Religious Education. With over 20 years employed in UU congregations in Metro NY, he has served in numerous congregational roles. Currently, he serves as Minister of Community Engagement for the Community Church of NYC.

He has a Masters in Urban Planning from NYU Wagner, and a Masters in Divinity from Union Theological Seminary at Columbia University. Prior to the ministry, Rev. Jude worked in community organizing and public advocacy on issues related to affordable housing, and health insurance outreach.

He recently finished serving a term on the board of the Liberal Religious Educators’ Association with the portfolio of Professional Support in order to join this work, as well as being a recent Good Officer for the UU Ministers’ Association for 4 years, and a founding member of the UU State Advocacy Network of NY. He lives with his husband, Brian Brewer, who works in Cancer Research, and their dog and cat, in Montclair, NJ, who both actually run the household (both, not all; I'll let you guess which of the 2 of three.) This work honors Rev. Dr. Hope Johnson who was a dear mentor, friend and teacher to Jude. In my spare time I am an avid reader of fantasy, sci fi and speculative fiction.

Spirit of Hope, God of Many Names, Source of Love, We gather, hearts heavy with grief for our neighbors in Paris, in Beirut, in Baghdad; all cities victimized by terrorists. We pray for the victims, for the families, for the communities marred by chaos and hatred. May they have the resources they...

Joy and celebration are worthy of the time we spend on them. The small moment of the candle being lit while singing ‘Silent Night’ is that important.
