Born and raised in Columbus Ohio, Rabbi Arthur Flicker received an undergraduate degree in history from Northwestern University and an MA in Jewish history from Ohio State University.
In 1990, Flicker was ordained by Rabbi and Professor Rueben Lukens of Florida who taught at Harvard Divinity School. Rabbi Flicker served at congregations in Texas and Ohio.
He became the rabbi at B’nai Israel, a Conservative congregation in Albuquerque, in 2005. He is married to Linda and they have two boys, Aaron and Ben.
RABBI Flicker knew that he wanted to become a rabbi when he felt the comfort that his own rabbi’s presence brought to his congregation in Ohio. He aspired to be the leader that the community turns to in times of need and decided to combine this desire with his love for educating and study to become a rabbi.
