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.

As a Columbia University alumnus, Rabbi Silverman has written a letter to its president, Lee Bollinger, in protest of the "Nakba Project," an initiative of Columbia's Center for Palestine Studies and Adalah, and anti-Israel NGO. The project promotes extreme anti-Israel rhetoric and provides a platform for BDS-ers. Read about it HERE. 

Your tax dollars paid for an event in Congress, sponsored by Congressman Mark Pocan, with speakers that denied Israel's right to exit and called Israel's founding in 1948 a “catastrophe." Please sign your name to a petition that demands our leaders condemn this hate speech and to ensure that a congressional event like this will not happen again, HERE.

An Israeli rabbi settler who praised attacks on Arabs has been indicted for incitement. While it is troubling that rabbis have come to this, credit should be given to the the Israeli judicial system and mainstream Jewish scholars for disowning such thinking and indicting this rabbi. It would be significant if such legal mechanisms were applied to Palestinian society for similar incitement. Read about it HERE.

It's time for Jewish leadership, the Jewish Federation, Jewish Family Services, Hillels, and college students' families to stand up to campus bullying and intimidation directed against Jewish students. Read one man's opinion about where inaction leads, HERE.

Are charity dollars being well directed? The Middle East forum is trying to persuade foundations to stop funding to Islamist institutions in the West that provide platforms for speakers and to organizatins that defend Shariah-sanctioned rape and sex slavery. Read about it HERE.

Watch two short, 5-min videos on the claimes of Palestinians and the error of some "progressive" polemics against the State of Israel. Be sure to watch the second film directly following the first, on the false "indigenous" narrative of Palestinian leaders. 
Israel-hating Latino student finds something unbelievable, HERE.
The 2016 African Debate Champion shares his thoughts on Israel, HERE.

Amazon offers 3 pages of Free Palestine T-shirts, including one for your baby.
