Rabbi Fred Guttman, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Emanuel

An Overview of Antisemitism – Then and Now

Fred is the Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Emanuel in Greensboro where he served from 1995 to 2021. From 1979 to 1991, Fred lived in Israel and served as the rabbi and principal of Alexander Muss High School in Israel. During that time, he served in a combat unit in the Israel Defense Forces.

Rabbi Guttman has been involved in numerous interfaith activities among which is organizing three Interfaith clergy trips to Israel designed to break down the religious, ethnic, and racial barriers that exist within Greensboro’s clergy and the faith communities that they represent. He is a regional director of the International March of the Living to Poland and Israel and has recruited and accompanied Greensboro teenagers on this program on 19 occasions. In 2015, he organized the National Jewish commemoration of the Bloody Sunday March in Selma Alabama on the 50th Anniversary of the March.

Rabbi Guttman established, along with his wife Nancy (and Laurie Regal), the yearly Greensboro Jewish Festival. The Festival is attended by thousands in Greensboro and highlights Jewish customs, food and culture. Over 300 Temple Emanuel volunteers spend nearly one year planning this event.

Rabbi Guttman has received numerous awards and honors including the Sharon Hoard Lifetime of Service Award from the Volunteer Center of the Triad, the Rabbinical Award from the United Jewish Communities and recognition as one of the 33 most Inspirational Rabbis in North America by the Forward Magazine. In 2022, he was awarded the Lifetime Community Service Award from the International Civil Rights Center and Museum.

He loves music and plays both the guitar and keyboard. He is married to Nancy and has three children and four grandchildren.
