Rabbi Edward Boraz, Ph.D.
“There is a place here for everyone” is an important part of our Rabbi’s vision. He recently became part of our congregational family in July of 2018, succeeding Rabbi Emeritus Dan Danson. He seeks only to build on our history and to be a Rabbi people will feel comfortable turning to in times of celebration, need, or just the ordinary rhythms of the weeks, months, and years.
Rabbi Boraz was ordained in 1993 at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati. He continued his studies in its School of Graduate Studies and in 1998, received his Doctor of Philosophy in Hebrew Cognate Studies with a particular emphasis on Jewish Law. Upon completion of his studies, from 1998 through 2018, he served as the Michael Steinberg ’61 Rabbi of Dartmouth College Hillel, Associate Chaplain for Jewish Life, and also as the Rabbi for the Upper Valley Jewish Community, a 200 member congregation. He also taught as an adjunct assistant professor at the Geisel School of Medicine.
Prior to his entry into rabbinical school, our Rabbi graduated Loyola University (1975) and was awarded a J.D. in 1978 from its law school. Afterwards, he practiced law and remains a member in good standing with the Illinois Bar.
Rabbi is also a Wexner Fellow and the author of “Understanding the Talmud: A Modern Reader’s Guide for Study.”
