Please join us as Rabbi Sam Shor leads us in a guided text discussion to prepare for Chanukah.
Albany native Rabbi Sam Shor is the Program Director of the Seymour J. Abrams Orthodox Union Jerusalem World Center in Jerusalem, where he oversees a vast network of Torah classes, tours, and social programming for Jerusalem’s Anglo community. He recently spearheaded the launch of JCHAT- the Jerusalem Community Hub for Anglos and Torah, a new OU initiative which is focused on creating a community for young professionals in Jerusalem.For the past two decades, Rabbi Shor has gained acclaim for his inspirational teaching, his work in adult education and as a mentor for young rabbis across the globe.
Rabbi Sam began his career in Jewish leadership right here in the Greater Capital District, serving first as Associate Regional Director of Upstate NY NCSY, then as Director of Jewish Life at the SAAJCC, and finally as one of the founding members of the Capital District Community Kollel.
Prior to his Aliya to Israel, “Rabbi Sam” was a popular teacher in the New York Metropolitan area, and he has been invited to communities across North America as a Scholar-in-Residence.
“Rabbi Sam” continues to be a resource to our Capital District Jewish Community both during his periodic visits and especially in spending time with our community members during our frequent Missions to Israel, having served as our Israel Missions Scholar in Residence since 2014.
Introducing students to many of the fundamental works of Jewish ethics, morality and spirituality, Rabbi Sam’s talent lies in allowing Jewish adults of all backgrounds to access, explore, and be inspired by a wide variety of our sacred texts. Rabbi Shor lives with his family in Jerusalem’s Katamon neighborhood where he is a popular Torah teacher for the English speaking community.
