Meet Rabbi Daniel Sher

Ordained in 2018 at HUC-JIR in Los Angeles, Rabbi Daniel Sher serves as the Assistant Rabbi at Kehillat Israel in the Pacific Palisades, CA.  There he works with families of all ages, ranging from preschool through 20’s and 30’s, among other rabbinic responsibilities.

Rabbi Sher enjoys spending time staying active, exploring the beauty of the city he lives in. Of course, that is all the more fun with his wife Jennifer, and kids Levi and Sami. As a southern California native, Rabbi Sher loves to now experience this city through a completely different lens.   As an 18Doors Fellow, Rabbi Sher hopes to activate couples’ engagement with the beauty and relevance of the Jewish experience, and witness for themselves the meaning it can add to our modern lives.
