Rabbi David Singer

Shearith Israel | Dallas, Texas | 30 years old
Conservative | Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University

“As a young Jewish adult who was engaged in Jewish activities throughout high school and college, I moved back to my hometown of Dallas five years ago and began searching for a fresh, innovative and spiritually moving Jewish community. Unfortunately, it didn’t exist. Then, six months ago, Makom — a project of Shearith Israel founded and led by Rabbi David Singer — launched and became a thriving community that takes over wine bars and living rooms to study Torah and gathers hundreds of young Jews for unparalleled Shabbat services and holiday celebrations. Rabbi Singer brings Torah to life and pushes young Jews in Dallas to build the Jewish community they’ve always dreamed of.”
