Rabbi Robert Kahn will present: From the Gaga Pit at CSS to the Holy City of Jerusalem: An informal and educational journey.
The son of Judith and Garry Kahn, Rob Kahn grew up in Portland as part of the Congregation Neveh Shalom kehilla. He spent many years at Camp Solomon Schechter – from camper to Camp Director. After earning his B.A. degree from Brandeis University, Rabbi Kahn went to Rabbinical School at the Jewish Theological Seminary and then became the Congregational Rabbi at Beth El Synagogue in Minneapolis for 15 years. In 2008, he made Aliyah with his family and settled in Jerusalem. He began as the Education Director at Young Judaea Year Course, and is currently a freelance tour guide and director of Israel programs for the Golda Och Academy in West Orange, NJ. Rob is the son of longtime Neveh Shalom members Judith and Garry Kahn.
