Josh Broide

As an 80-year-old volunteer at Florida Atlantic University, I wandered into the Hillel lounge in search of a Passover Seder. There, I met the Energizer Bunny of rabbis, Josh Broide. He found me a Seder and invited me to attend “Friday Night Live,” an inclusive service he holds at a traditional Orthodox Boca Raton shul. With Carlebach melodies and huge heartfelt love for Judaism, expressed through Rabbi Broide’s inimitable self-deprecating but enchanting style, the service lifts a group of not-young people into a beautiful Shabbos world.
