Meet My Millionaires ... Er... I mean Rabbis

by Eser Young Adult Learning Series / February 17, 2012

Fine, they don't make millions, but each are quite the catch for the Eser program. Our four young, fabulous facilitators (one is actually not a rabbi) have been hard at work on the content of the Top Ten Jewish Innovations and can't wait to meet all 60 participants when the program kicks off in another week and a half.

Rabbi Neil Hirsch - one of the Eser rabbisRabbi Neil Hirsch joined the staff of Temple Shalom in Newton in June 2010, but was familiar with Greater Boston from his college days at Tufts. He was born and raised in Houston, Texas, and received his ordination from Hebrew Union College in New York City. Rabbi Hirsch is an avid cyclist and runner—he ran in the November 2009 New York City Marathon.



 

 

 
Rabbi Rachel Silverman - another Eser rabbi!Rabbi Rachel Silverman is director of congregational learning at Congregation Kehillath Israel (KI) in Brookline. An alumnus of Brandeis University, she also received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary. Rabbi Rachel created the "Real Men Marry Rabbis" T-shirt, of which hundreds have sold worldwide, and launched Homegrown Judaica (www.homegrownjudaica.com), an online art marketplace.

 

 

 


Rabbi Daniel Klein - another Eser rabbiRabbi Daniel Klein is director of admissions for the Rabbinical School of Hebrew College and director of student life of Hebrew College. A Newton native, Rabbi Klein taught middle school history prior to receiving ordination from Hebrew College. He has worked for years in informal education—at Camp Yavneh, Genesis at Brandeis, and Gann Academy. He is married to Jen, has a three-year-old, Micah, and is a huge fan of the Cohen brothers.
