Jewish Relationships Initiative
Jewish Relationships Initiative Corp is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt corporation. Jewish Relationships Initiative (JRI) was formed to provide outreach focusing on the unaffiliated Jewish population of Greater Philadelphia. We seek to create relationships through meaningful connection to Jewish wisdom, ritual and community. We do this through lifecycle events, study and learning, conversation and connection to others.
Rabbi David Levin
~ God’s Miracle is not in the Thunder and Lightning but in people sheltering others from the storm
David Levin- I am a reform rabbi ordained from the Hebrew Union College- Jewish Institute of Religion (NY). I serve the community of Greater Philadelphia. I also devote time to special projects including Jewish Sacred Aging, teaching and free speech issues on the college campus. I am a Fellow with Rabbis Without Borders (RWB), an inter-denominational rabbinic group dedicated to sharing wisdom across traditions to better serve the Jewish people. RWB is affiliated with CLAL.
Previously, I worked with the Union for Reform Judaism in the Congregational Network as a Rabbinical Director serving the East Coast congregations. I also served at Main Line Reform Temple in Wynnewood, PA as a student intern and adjunct Rabbi.
I am proud to be one of Rabbi Louis Frishman’s (z”l) “Temple Kids”, from Temple Beth El in Spring Valley, NY. I attended the University of Chicago earning an AB in Economics and went on to the New York University Graduate School of Business where I earned an MBA in Finance. Before becoming a rabbi, my earlier career centered in banking and real estate finance, and I also worked in the family garment business.
Rabbi David Levin- I am available to you for life-cycle events, learning or conversations about issues that concern you. You can reach me via email at RabbiDavidLevin@gmail.com or on the contact form.
