Assistant Rabbi Search: Q & A with Rabbi Binyamin Silver

Rabbi Binyamin Silver and Dr. Howie Shulman

The YISE Board and Rabbi Rosenbaum have approved three potential candidates for the position of Assistant Rabbi.

Our second candidate was Rabbi Binyamin Silver. Rabbi Silver visited our shul the weekend of June 9-10.

On the Sunday of their visit each candidate will attend a meet & greet in the Social Hall, followed by a Q & A session with the Congregation. Questions have both been submitted in advance by email and submitted in writing at the event.
