Morristown Jewish Center

Rabbi Adam Gillman

Rabbi Adam Gillman Shalom Friends,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael.

I am honored to serve as the Rabbi of MJCBY and am passionate about creating community through prayer, dialogue, and text study across diverse spectrums of identity and belief.

My hope is to continue planting the seeds of lifelong learning and growth so that all feel supported in choosing how best to contribute their unique gifts and abilities to their communities and society. I endeavor to expand the tallit (prayer shawl) of Jewish learning and involvement to include those who see themselves on the fringes of Klal Yisrael (the Jewish People).

I received rabbinic ordination from the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) in New York and received the MA degree from The William Davidson Graduate School of Jewish Education. During my studies, I served multiple congregations, including the Hewlett East Rockaway Jewish Centre and Congregation Sons of Israel in Nyack, NY. I earned a Certificate in Pastoral Care and Counseling from The Center for Pastoral Education at JTS.

Before beginning rabbinical school, I studied at The Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. I also served as a Conflict Resolution Fellow, where I worked with Israeli and Palestinian youth through Kids4Peace, an international peacebuilding organization.

I am a graduate of Western Washington University and a native of Seattle.

In my free time, I love to spend time outdoors, cooking and playing basketball. My wife, Leah, and I live in Morristown with our growing collection of cookbooks and spices.

I look forward to meeting you.
