RabbiSilvermanMain2

Our Rabbi, Ian Silverman, earned a BA in psychology from Columbia University and an MA in Jewish Communal Service from Brandeis University. His ordination took place at the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College where he earned an MA in Jewish Studies and his Teacher's Certificate from Gratz College. He earned a Doctorate of Jewish Studies from the Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies.

Rabbi Silverman has been a pulpit Rabbi for more than 25 years and enjoys working with our children in Religious School, teaching Adult Education courses and writing scholarly essays. Two of these essays, one on the subject of the High Priest and the other on Happenstance and Accident in Jewish traditional sources, were honored with publication in the Conservative Quarterly Journal.

Most recently, he indulged his art hobby by completing a complete set of pastel illustrations depicting each of the weekly portions of the Five Books of Moses.

Rabbi Silverman is married and has two sons.

Rabbi Silverman's Suggested Sites to See

Please sign a petition requesting Food & Wine Magazine to stop supporting terrorism and violence against Jews. The magazine recently named an Oakland California Arab bakery to their list of 2018 Restaurants of the Year, painting it as a place where Jews and Arabs can come together to enjoy a meal in peace. Yet the restaurant has a wall-sized mural of a terrorist who has been convicted of two Jerusalem bombings that have killed Hebrew University students. It is irresponsible for this bakery to be chosen by the magazine. Sign the petition HERE. 

Beware of "social justice" trips to Israel. Currently, a goup of self-proclaimed social-justice advocates are touring Israel and the West Bank, but they are made up of anti-Israel members that promote BDS and are involved with efforts to delegitimize Israel. Read about it HERE.

Read a piece by Daniel Sugarman, who initially condemned Israel's actions in shooting Gazans rushing Israel's border. Learning that over 80% of those killed trying to breach the border were Hamas operatives, however, he acknowledges that the only viable option is to shoot at the people running at you with the stated aim of killing you and your family. In the light of day, he says, he cannot see how Israel could do anything different. Read his article HERE.

Listen to former Muslim extremeist Maajid Nawaz, who now stands up against radical Muslims, HERE.

Read an excellent article by Yossi Klein HaLevi about how Israelis react to the international condemnation of their country for their tough military resonse to the Second Intifada and the attemps to breach Israel's borders HERE.

Mahmoud Abbas' incendiary speech, where he blamed the Jews for their own murder in the Holocaust and denied any Jewish connection to the Land of Israel, not only vindicated claims made by Netanuyahu over the years, but more importantly revealed that the Palestinians have no credibility as partners in establishing peace in the region. Even the New York Times seems to have shifted its consistent support of the Palestinian cause. Read about it HERE.

 

Watch and important video showing the proximity of Israeli families to the Gaza border and just what is at stake in allowing the border to be penetrated. For some reason this simple information is not made explicit in press coverage. HERE.

Read Hadassah National President Ellen Hershkin's letter to the Washington Post to urge for fair reporting on the situation in Gaza HERE.

Even the Palestinian Authority is accusing Hamas of sending children to their deaths in Gaza to grab headlines. Why doesn't the world nor the media believe these words from the mouths of Palestinians? And the irony: As Palestinians rolled burning tires toward the border, a Hamas spokesman is condemnins Israel for stopping the import of new tires to Gaza and now there is a tire shortage. Read about it HERE.

Although some argue that Jews are the alien population to Palestine, implanted by the British, in fact, Jews are the indigenous population in this area based on historical and genetic documentation. It is the Palestinians, however, who are there as a result of converts from those indigenous pre-modern Jews and Christians who submitted to Islam, Muslim invaders, and Arab immigrants. Read about it HERE.
