Rabbi Edward Bernstein
B’nai Zion Congregation is pleased to welcome Rabbi Edward Bernstein as our spiritual leader for the 2020-20201/5781 High Holiday season.
Rabbi Bernstein currently serves as Chaplain for Vitas Healthcare in
Palm Beach County, Florida.
He hosts the My Teacher Podcast, a celebration of the people who shape our lives, and also blogs for the Times of Israel. Originally from Chicago, Rabbi Bernstein grew up in the Conservative Movement and was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary. He has served congregations over an
18-year period in NY, OH, and FL.
A recognized leader in the Jewish world, Rabbi Bernstein has served as president of the South Florida Rabbinical Assembly and the Greater Cleveland Board of Rabbis. He presently serves as co-chair of the Rabbinical Assembly Resolutions Committee, a post he shares with Rabbi Susan Tendler.
Rabbi Bernstein will be leading our online High Holiday services from his home in Boynton Beach, FL. He states, “While the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from being together physically, I am looking forward to providing spiritual support to B’nai Zion during the High Holidays and helping to create a soulful community experience.”
He continues, “Last Yom Kippur, who could have imagined what a challenging year it would be for the B’nai Zion community, for the nation and for the world? Through our online gathering this year on the High Holidays, I hope that we will affirm life, celebrate life and commit to meaningful living in the coming year.”
