Rabbi Adam J. ..., 8 Feb 2015 [cached]
Rabbi Adam J. Raskin Rabbi Adam J. Raskin has been the spiritual leader of Congregation Har Shalom since 2011. Originally from Cleveland, OH, he developed a love of synagogue life as a child, and was encouraged by his own rabbi to grow and learn Jewishly, to travel to Israel, and to imagine a career in the rabbinate. He earned his BA in Jewish Studies at The Ohio State University, and received the prestigious Wexner Graduate Fellowship for his studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York and Jerusalem. Upon ordination, the Rabbinical School awarded him the Lamport Prize in Homiletics, and he spent the first nine years of his rabbinate in Dallas, Texas. Rabbi Raskin is the first rabbi ever to be accepted to and participate in Leadership Montgomery, and he is a member of the Board of Directors of the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington, Vice President of the Baltimore/Washington Region of the Rabbinical Assembly, and very active in pro-Israel advocacy. Some of his greatest loves include teaching and inculcating Jewish joy in children's lives (you can always find him outside greeting kids on Tuesday evenings and Sunday mornings, as well as in the classroom every week in the Religious School or telling stories to preschoolers), teaching and relating Judaism's deep wisdom in classes and on the bimah, and participating in people's most sacred life experiences. He possesses truly boundless love for the Jewish people, and he cherishes his relationships with members of the congregation. Rabbi Raskin is joined in his sacred work by his wife, Sari Levinson Raskin, and their three children, Mia, Nessa, and Ezra.

Rabbi Raskin Rabbi Adam J. Raskin is the spiritual leader of Congregation Beth Torah. Rabbi Raskin and his wife, Sari, are passionate about traditional Jewish life in a modern world. They endeavor to teach that sacred balance through classes, programming, and personal role modeling. Together they envision Beth Torah as a place of spirited prayer, inspired learning, and meaningful opportunities for Jewish growth. Rabbi Raskin is originally from Cleveland, OH. He earned his BA in Jewish Studies at The Ohio State University, and was awarded the prestigious Wexner Graduate Fellowship for his studies at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. He also spent a year in Israel studying at the Seminary's Jerusalem campus. During rabbinical school he served the Jewish community of Huntsville, AL as student rabbi of Etz Hayim Congregation, the Huntsville Conservative Synagogue. After serving for three years in a rabbinic assistantship, Rabbi Raskin was elected to lead Congregation Beth Torah in 2005, where he serves as a compassionate spiritual leader, enthusiastic teacher, and devoted advocate for Jewish life. Along with his rabbinic duties, Rabbi Raskin is currently the President of the Rabbinic Association of Greater Dallas. He has served on the boards of the Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas, the Ann and Nate Levine Academy (a Solomon Schechter School), Israel Bonds, the Pastoral Care Advisory Committee of Children's Medical Center, the Advisory Council of the Holocaust Studies Program at the University of Texas at Dallas, and as the regional rabbinic representative on United Synagogue's Youth Commission. He is an adjunct faculty member at the University of North Texas, where teaches periodically in the Jewish Studies program. Along with Conservative rabbinic and education colleagues in Greater Dallas, Rabbi Raskin was instrumental in the founding of ATID (Academy for Torah in Dallas), an innovative high school program for 11th & 12th graders from throughout the community. He recently authored an article in the CJ: Voices of Conservative Judaism magazine about this exciting endeavor. In 2006-2007, Rabbi Raskin was selected as one of 19 rabbis nationwide to participate in the Executive Leadership Program of "Synagogues: Transformation and Renewal (STAR)," a cutting edge synagogue think-tank funded by the Schusterman and Bronfman Family Foundations. In November of 2010, Rabbi Raskin was invited to participate in the Kellogg School of Management's Education for Jewish Leaders program at Northwestern University. Rabbi Raskin is a regular contributor in the local press, has appeared on local television stations, and is a sought after speaker throughout the community. An essay written by Rabbi Raskin was recently published in the Jewish Publication Society's new series, "Celebrating the Jewish Year The Winter Holidays."
