Rabbi Rachel Silverman serves as a rabbi at Temple Israel of Sharon. Prior to coming to Sharon, she spent five years at Congregation Kehillath Israel (KI) in Brookline, MA. Over the years, she has taught for Eser and Kevah, was a member of the Rabbinical Assembly Strategic Visioning Team, and she served as a board member for Hillel at Brandeis for six years. 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 three children, and a yellow lab named Abby.
