May I introduce myself to you. I am Rabbi Hillel E. Silverman and it is my pleasure to serve our wonderful congregation, Bnai Shalom.
I have been the Rabbi in three major congregations, Dallas, Los Angeles, Greenwich Connecticut. I graduated from Yale University and was ordained and received my PHD at The Jewish Theological Seminary. I served as a Navy Chaplain during the Korean War, have written 12 books and have been active in many national organizations.
An affiliate of United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism Bnai Shalom is a small friendly and intimate congregation. Our members are very welcoming, warm and congenial. We offer Sabbath morning and monthly Friday Night services. We schedule social and cultural events and provide our children with a fine religious school emphasizing prayer, holidays, ethics and Israel.
We offer High Holiday services, Passover Seders, Purim and Hanukah Parties, monthly Havarahs , and a variety of other social events for our congregants.
I look forward to meeting you personally.
Rabbi Hillel E. Silverman
B’nai Shalom of San Diego County is a
Conservative Jewish Organization that gives Jewish families a place to worship, learn and socialize with other Jewish families. By giving Jewish families these opportunities we will build a warm, inviting community that facilitates carrying on of Jewish traditions of more than 5,000 years.
The B’nai Shalom monthly Havurah program has been a very successful social event that offers friendship, an extended family feeling, and a great way to really get to know one another within the B’nai Shalom community. We also welcome guests interested in experiencing our Havurah and meeting the Temple members. The word Havurah comes from the Hebrew word “chaver”, meaning “friend” and people of all faiths are welcomed. Our Havurah provides members and guests with a special opportunity for a fun night out. We experience the taste of great food, drinks and desserts that attendees bring. The host only supplies eating utensils, plates, cups and soft drinks. We always have interesting discussions, learn new things about each other, laugh a lot and enjoy different types of activities that the host chooses. […]
