Our Rav

Rabbi Shmuel Silber has been the Mara D’Asra of our Kehilla since 2003.  As our spiritual leader, Rabbi Silber’s dedication and commitment is demonstrated time and again through his shiurim and classes, as well as a strong caring presence during times of simcha and sorrow.  His dedication to ongoing, advanced adult learning led to the inception of the Institute for Jewish Continuity; an in person, and online learning center, dedicated to providing inspiring and intellectually invigorating Torah learning to all levels of learners.  With a variety of classes, as well as a diverse mix of lecturers, The Institute for Jewish Continuity has quickly become a well-recognized center for advancing adult Jewish education.

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 a Masters degree in Secondary Jewish Education from Azrieli Graduate School.

Rabbi Silber has previously served as a Scholar in Residence in the United States, Israel, and South Africa and teaches a Masters Degree Program in Adult Education at the Johns Hopkins University.  Currently in Baltimore, he teaches an ongoing class on Perek Shira at the Women’s Institute of Torah (WIT), and several well received classes at the Institute for Jewish Continuity.
