Meet our new Student Rabbi
Hi, my name is Danielle Weisbrot and I am excited to be joining North Fork Reform Synagogue as your student rabbi this fall! I am a native Long Islander, from New Hyde Park, and am now completing my second year of rabbinical school at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. I also currently teach 5th grade Judaic Studies at Brooklyn Heights Synagogue Religious School. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English, with a minor in Judaic Studies, at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. Before enrolling at HUC-JIR, I worked at an education and performing arts non-profit in East Harlem and at a charter school management company. In my spare time, I do volunteer work for Dickinson College’s admissions department, at JBI (formerly the Jewish Braille Institute), and at the HUC-JIR soup kitchen, where I help prepare weekly meals for our guests. I also enjoy reading, baking, and singing with the choir at my home congregation.
