Danny is thrilled to be the rabbi of The Selma and Lawrence Ruben Base UWS. He is deeply passionate about helping others connect with Judaism in authentically meaningful ways. Danny and his wife Tamara are committed to building a pluralistic Jewish community through Torah, justice and compassion, soulful prayer, and stimulating conversations. You will most likely find Danny studying a hasidic text, rallying for justice, (re)watching “The West Wing,” or eating sushi. He is interested in how we explore personal, political, and religious differences amongst ourselves, and he spent his final year of rabbinical school studying Hassidic tales focused on how these differences can be used to strengthen interpersonal relationships and holy community.
Danny received his rabbinic ordination from Hebrew College in Boston, where he completed a specialization in Spirituality and Social Justice and a unit of Clinical Pastoral Education at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center.
