Rabbi Sam Fraint

Moriah Congregation | Deerfield, Illinois | 62 years old
Conservative | Jewish Theological Seminary

“I was fortunate to study in Sam Fraint’s adult b’nai mitzvah class: When I told him I wanted to learn to read Torah, he promptly taught me himself. I can’t wait for his thought-provoking and inspiring sermons each week. Sam is also an ardent champion of the Ramah camping and USY movements, encouraging our kids to participate. And he is deeply committed to Israel — highly knowledgeable about its politics and challenges. When rabbis and other guests visit Moriah Congregation they are amazed at the level of Hebrew and halachic literacy in our shul — not to mention the enthusiasm with which we participate in services. Sam Fraint is most definitely the glue that holds us together.”
