Rabbi Jonathan Perlman

New Light Synagogue; Forbes Hospice | Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania | 49 years old
Conservative | Jewish Theological Seminary

“During the week, Jonathan Perlman provides spiritual care to patients of all religions at Forbes Hospice, helping them and their families speak about any unfinished business and communicating their needs. He will record oral testimonies, help families have hard conversations, sing and listen to whatever they wish to say. On Shabbat and holidays, he is spiritual leader of New Light. For the recent Purim holiday he and his family dressed as bakers and he wrote a hysterically funny Purim shpiel telling the Megillah story from the point of view of the caterer. Did I mention that he brought in etrog vodka, too? Jon Perlman loves Judaism, teaching and helping people.”
