TEMPLE SHIR TIKVA

Rabbi Danny Burkeman

Rabbi Danny is the Senior Rabbi at Temple Shir Tikva. In his own words he is committed “to making Judaism relevant in the modern world,” believing that it offers many answers to the major problems affecting society today.

In 2019 Rabbi Danny was a recipient of the CJP’s Chai in the Hub Award for Jewish leaders under 40. He was a member of the inaugural cohort of the UJA Federation of New York’s Rabbinic Fellowship for Visionary Leaders and he is a Rabbis Without Borders Fellow. Every week you can hear his reflections on the weekly Torah portion in his  Two Minutes of Torah podcast, which was included in a list of the Top Seven Jewish podcasts. Prior to joining Temple Shir Tikva he served as a Rabbi at The Community Synagogue in Port Washington, NY and at The West London Synagogue in England.

Outside of the Synagogue Rabbi Danny is married to Micol, a Jewish educator, and together they are the proud parents of Gabby and Benny. While most of his time outside of the synagogue is spent with his family he still finds opportunities to follow sports (pretty much all sports). Since moving here he has adopted all of the Boston sports teams as his own, although his heart still belongs to his beloved Liverpool Football Club first and foremost. He is a big fan of the British TV series Doctor Who, and he would be happy to talk to you about it at length.
