Rabbi Rachel Silverman is the Rabbi for Congregational Learning at Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline, MA. She also teaches in the Eser program, convenes a Kevah group, and writes for Boston Moms Blog. She was a PresenTense Fellow in 2010-11 for her company, Homegrown Judaica.
Her favorite parts of her work are celebrating life cycle events (conversions, weddings, baby namings, and more) with congregants, watching students young and old engaged in learning, and helping b'nei mitzvah accomplish their goals. It is a joy and a true blessing to be a part of these intimate moments with families.
Rabbi Silverman lives in Cleveland Circle with her husband Josh, her daughter Anna, and her furry dog-ter, a yellow lab named Abby.
