Alum Named to Chicago 36 under 36

Rabbi Zachary James Silver was named to “Double Chai in the Chi: Chicago’s Jewish 36 Under 36” by Oy!Chicago and the Young Leadership Division of Jewish United Fund of Metropolitan Chicago:

“Every day, Rabbi Zachary Silver gets the opportunity to have a positive impact on the lives of Chicago Jewish teens. As the Rav Beit Sefer (school rabbi) at Rochelle Zell Jewish High School [RZJHS], he uses his knowledge and passion to develop students who invest in their Jewish learning and Jewish living, and what it means to be a Jew in the 21st century. He also leads the school’s Interfaith Youth Corps group.

He helps to coordinate two Shabbat minyanim in Lakeview: Lakeview Minyan, which attracts a dynamic community of 80 to 100 people on Friday evenings, and Rose Crown Minyan at Anshe Emet Synagogue, of which he is a co-chair.”
