Rabbi Shmuel Silber
As our spiritual leader, Rabbi Silber plays a significant role in our community and life-long learning at Suburban Orthodox, Congregation Toras Chaim. Knowledgeable and approachable, he brings an innovative and fresh perspective to the congregation and the community at large. His dedication and commitment is demonstrated time and again through his scholarly shiurim, classes, and programs as well as providing a strong caring presence during times of simcha and sorrow. These strengths combined with his joy of Judaism and dedication to Zionism help to support a foundation based upon a Modern Orthodox environment that our congregation's ideals rest upon.
Prior to coming to Suburban Orthodox, Rabbi Silber was the Assistant Rabbi of Congregation Shomrei Torah, in Fair Lawn, NJ. While at Shomrei Torah, he was also Director of Education for KOF-K Kosher Supervision, an international Kashrus agency based in Teaneck, NJ. Rabbi Silber received Semicha (ordination) from Yeshiva University and is currently continuing his rabbinic education in the Kollel L'Horaah, which offers an advanced Yadin Yadin Semicha and qualifies one to be a Dayan (rabbinic judge). In addition he has received a Masters degree in Secondary Jewish Education from Azrieli Graduate School.
Rabbi Silber has served as a Scholar in Residence in Israel and South Africa, taught a Masters Degree Program in Adult Education through the Johns Hopkins University, and teaches an ongoing class on Tehillim at the Women’s Institute of Torah (WIT) here in Baltimore. His published works include "The Melting Pot" which was published in honor of Israel's 60th Birthday. Rabbi Silber and his wife Aviva B'H have six children.
