Our Team

Rabbi Geier came to Utica, New York by way of Argentina, and joined us at Temple Beth El in 2021.


From 2017 to 2020 he was in charge of the clergy at Comunidad Hebrea in Guadalajara, Mexico, as a rabbinical student. Prior to this he served as spiritual leader, chazzan, and teacher in the Jewish community in Buenos Aires.

Rabbi Geier is fluent in several languages including Spanish and Hebrew. He is a warm and engaging educator and leads many of our classes. His wealth of knowledge and dedication to the Utica Jewish community has made him an invaluable part of our temple leadership.
