Rabbi Dan Ain, from Congregation Beth Sholom in San Francisco, develops meaningful ways to worship in the 21st century – creating experiences that speak to people today, using the language, lessons and music of the past.
After his ordination from The Jewish Theological Seminary, Rabbi Ain served as the Rabbi at the New Shul and was Director of Tradition and Innovation at the New York City 92nd St. Y. Most recent and prior to joining Congregation Beth Sholom, Rabbi Ain (along with his wife Alana Joblin Ain) co-founded and served as spiritual leaders for the Brooklyn based organization Because Jewish, which creates opportunities for our religious perspectives to be in genuine dialogue with our artists, our musicians and our everyday lives.
In our parshat, Korach, a Levite, along with two sons of Eliab, decided to rise up against Moses with the support of 250 community leaders. When Moses heard this, he fell on his face. Then the ground under Korach, the sons of Eliab and their followers split, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed them and their houses and all of their property.
