Rabbi Michael Knopf is the Assistant Rabbi of Har Zion Temple in Penn Valley, PA. He is dedicated to engaging and supporting spiritual seekers; communicating the transformative power of Torah and prayer; and building welcoming, supportive, and inspiring community. These passions inspired him, prior to his ordination from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, to help coordinate the Miller Introduction to Judaism Program, the nation’s largest preparatory program for conversion to Judaism; to work as a spiritual counselor at Beit T’Shuvah, a Jewish addiction treatment facility; and to serve several congregations and educational institutions in the U.S. and Canada. A CLAL “Rabbi Without Borders,” Rabbi Knopf is a regular contributor to Haaretz‘s “Rabbi’s Roundtable” blog, Jewish Values Online, and other publications; and has a weekly podcast featured on the JCast Network. Rabbi Knopf holds bachelors degrees from Columbia University (History, Cum Laude) and The Jewish Theological Seminary of America (Talmud and Rabbinics, Magna Cum Laude), and enjoys movies, traveling, and pizza. He shares his life with his wife and best friend, Adira, and their daughter, Lilah.
