Daniel DorschDaniel Dorsch is in his final year at The Rabbinical School of The Jewish Theological Seminary, and a recent graduate (MA, Jewish Education) of the William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education of JTS. New this year to Prozdor, he is the school’s education coordinator and teaches at the main campus in New York City on Sundays and Wednesdays and at the Ridgewood campus on Tuesdays. When Dan's not teaching, he works as an assistant rabbi at Temple Sinai in Middletown, New York.
Dan is also a graduate of the Joint Program between the Albert A. List College of Jewish Studies of JTS and Columbia University, having earned degrees in History, Modern Jewish Studies, and Talmud and Rabbinics. It was during his years of undergraduate and graduate study and teaching at a religious school in Westchester County that Dan first discovered his love of Jewish education and made the decision to pursue it as a career. He is a Philadelphia native who is particularly partial to his hometown sports teams (especially his world champion Phillies!). Dan married Amy Greenfeld Dorsch in May of 2009, a fellow Davidson alumnus, who currently works as the education coordinator for United Synagogue Youth in New York. After all of these years at JTS, Dan is looking forward to using this year at Prozdor to give back to the community that has given him so much.
