Rabbi Shalom Morris
New York City
Shalom Morris is the Educational Director at Shearith Israel, the Spanish Portuguese Synagogue of NY. Born Ashkenazi, he has become a 'switch hitter' and now attempts to navigate both Sephardic and Ashkenazi, as well as American and International, communities. Often asked, 'You're a rabbi? How old are you?' Shalom is both relatable and knowledgeable. He has become involved in JICNY, at times as a rabbi and at times as a participant, and loves the mixture of backgrounds, cultures and languages that are at the core of this wonderful and inspiring organization.
