Rabbi Rachel Silverman is the Associate Rabbi and Director of Community Engagement at Temple Israel of Sharon. Over the years, she has taught for Eser and Kevah, was a member of the Rabbinical Assembly Strategic Visioning Team, and she currently serves as a board member for Hillel at Brandeis. She was a PresenTense Fellow in 2010-11 for her company, Homegrown Judaica.
Her favorite parts of rabbinic life 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 families reach their goals. It is a joy and a true blessing to be a part of these intimate moments with families.
Rabbi Silverman lives in Sharon with her husband, their two children, and a yellow lab named Abby.
