Guest rabbi coming to Temple Beth-El, Alpena, Michigan

For the first time in decades, Sabbath services at Temple Beth-El Alpena will be led by a rabbi. Temple Beth-El is pleased to announce that on Saturday, Rabbi Ronald N. Silverman will lead the Sabbath service, and on Sunday, he will lead a “Music and More” program at the synagogue.

Rabbi Reuven, who spent many years in Chasidic life before returning to Conservative/Reform Judaism, credits his grandmothers for “my love of my Jewish identity” and for “sending me on a lifetime journey of practicing Judaism.”

He is a graduate of the University of Illinois, obtained his rabbinic ordination from the New York Jewish Spiritual Leaders Institute and serves on a team of rabbis who conduct services and ordain rabbis.

The community is invited to join in an authentic Jewish experience with this learned, exuberant, guitar-playing rabbi at Temple Beth-El, 125 White, at Sabbath Services on Saturday at 11 a.m. and at the “Music and More” program on Sunday from 2-4 p.m. During “Music and More,” Rabbi Reuven will blend music with a lesson on the power of speech known as Lashon Hara.
