About BOR

Welcome to the Board of Rabbis of Greater Philadelphia (BOR)!

The BOR is comprised of a diverse group of rabbis who live and/or work in the greater Philadelphia region. BOR members serve in a wide range of professional contexts and represent a wide range of rabbinic perspectives. The ultimate goal of the BOR is to contribute to a strong, vibrant and diverse Jewish community.

The BOR’s mission is to convene Philadelphia area rabbis to accomplish the following goals:

  • Foster collegial relationships among our diverse community of rabbis;
  • Create opportunities for rabbis to learn from each other and to be resources for each other in a way that inspires us to be strong and effective communal leaders;
  • Work collaboratively with the local Jewish decision-making organizations to assure that rabbinic perspectives are included as part of the community conversation;
  • Represent Jewish perspectives in Philadelphia-area multi-faith fora.
