Rabbi Richard Plavin has served Beth Sholom B'nai Israel since 1979. He is passionate about transmitting the beauty of Jewish living to all Jews. To this end, he promotes Jewish education as a lifelong pursuit and makes his Torah lessons applicable to life today. His love for Israel is reflected in the eleven congregational trips to Israel he and his wife Lisa have organized.
Rabbi Plavin was raised in the Conservative Movement, participating in Israel Pilgrimage in 1964 and serving in leadership positions in U.S.Y. He holds a bachelor's degree from Columbia University, as well as a doctorate in education from that institution, and received a master's degree and ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary of America.
If you have questions about our congregation, Rabbi Plavin looks forward to discussing them with you.
