Welcome to Our New Senior Rabbi

Dear Members of B’nai Israel,

Please join me in welcoming Rabbi Michael J. Safra as our congregation’s new Senior Rabbi.

Rabbi Safra came to us straight from the Jewish Theological Seminary 15 years ago, and it has been all of our pleasure to watch him grow with us as he has brought his passion for Judaism to every corner of B’nai Israel.

He and his family have been a warm addition to the B’nai family.  He and his wife Sharon quickly embraced our close-knit community and worked to bring so many new people into our thriving congregation.  We are thrilled to have Rabbi Safra, Sharon Rosenberg Safra, and their three children Rebecca, Ethan and Gila continue to grow with us.

Rabbi Safra has made a particular mark on our programming and on children’s Shabbat and Holiday services over the past fifteen years. Now, in his new role as Senior Rabbi we look forward to all that he will bring for the future of B’nai Israel.

Marla Schulman
President, B’nai Israel Congregation
