Meet Rabbi David Paskin

Rosh Musica

Shalom, I’m Rabbi David, spiritual leader, singer/songwriter, entertainer, Jewish futurist, social activist, Jewish educator and founding rabbi of OHEL. I currently serve as the Director of Youth and Family Engagement at Temple Sinai of North Dade and as the Educational Director of the Institute of Jewish Knowledge and Learning in Broward County. I love spending my summers as Rosh Musica (Music Director) at Camp Ramah Darom! Ramah Darom is my “happy place” where I get to escape the craziness of the world and live a full, joyous and meaningful Jewish life surrounded by the coolest kids in the world!

I’m a graduate of Brandeis University (1993) and the Academy for Jewish Religion (2002), and I have been working in the Jewish world for over two decades teaching at various religious schools, day schools, and camps around the country. In the Boston area, I was the rabbi of Temple Beth Abraham for 17 years in addition to serving as Music and Judaics Director of Grossman Camp, as Judaic Studies Coordinator of the Rashi School of Greater Boston and as co-head of school at Kehillah Schechter Academy.

I’m known as the “Rock n’Roll Rabbi” because I’ve written, performed and produced six albums of contemporary Jewish music. I love sharing music and Jewish joy with the Ramah Darom family and can’t wait to get back to Clayton, GA!
