Shabbat with Rabbinic Candidate - Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg, June 14-15

Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg, is one of the impressive candidates we discovered through our search and has been invited to meet the Stanton community. This is an opportunity for our community to gain a sense of his personal, spiritual and leadership skills.   


Shabbat Schedule:

7:00 pm - Kabbalat Shabbat with Dvar Torah

Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg was raised Hasidic and educated in Yeshiva Or Shraga Itzhak (Borush-Ruzhyn.)  He received his semicha from Beit Menachem, a Chabad yeshiva, in Bnei Brak.  Rounding out his education he received a B.A in Jewish Thought, Talmud & Halacha, from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.  Rabbi Rosenberg served as rabbi of the Orthodox community in Wroclaw (Breslau), Poland and of Kehilat Tiferet Shalom, in Ramat AvivIsrael. He is attracted to the Stanton Street Shul because it is orthodox, open, welcoming and progressive.  He believes that combination defines him very well.

Community News:

We are excited to announce that two very strong rabbinic candidates have been invited to 

the Shul to meet the Stanton Street Shul family. After several interviews, the Search Committee has vetted two candidates to date. These Shabbatot will be an opportunity for our community to meet and greet these impressive men. 

June 14-15, Parsha Nasso - Rabbi Shmuel Rosenberg (see details below)

July 12-13, Parsha Chukat - Rabbi Ben Keil 

Please submit questions you would like to ask the rabbis at the Q & A sessions to Jeff Katz in advance
