Unravel Torah, Talmud and Mishnah in this Judaism 101 series. Rashi was a medieval French Rabbi who created the first comprehensive commentary on the Torah and the Tanakh. Dan Gordan is the Rabbi of Temple Beth Torah and the Director of Education at the Houston Jewish Community Center, and frequently teaches through stories and acting, such as his role in: A Talmud Tale. Rabbi Dan Gordon, has been the spiritual leader of Temple Beth Torah (TBT) since 1998. He received his rabbinic ordination (semicha) from the Mesifta Adath Wolkowisk Rabbinical Academy of New York. Prior to rabbinic work, each step in his professional career led to this life calling. He directed Jewish summer camps as well as a camp for economically disadvantaged children. He served as a youth director, a Jr. Congregation leader, JCC program director and a principal of a Jewish high school program. For two years, he also managed an auto parts warehouse, gaining valuable lessons from various segments of both the Jewish and secular worlds. In each of these endeavors, Dan’s primary focus was connecting with people. His talent as a storyteller has taken him all over the United States, Israel and Australia, performing and leading workshops for all ages. Since 2006, he has co-chaired the National Jewish Storytelling Network, and he is a past president of Houston’s Jewish Educators Council. He has served on the faculty of the JCC’s Melton Adult Mini-School since 2002 and also served as its interim director. Since coming to TBT, he has been active in the interfaith community as a board member of the American Jewish Committee, a member of the Coalition for Mutual Respect and on the advisory boards of CanCare and TRUTH: Travels Revealing Understanding-Trust-Hope. He has invigorated TBT’s community, inspiring children and adults to enjoy Judaism through song, story, fellowship and mitzvot. And he has especially enjoyed learning your stories and sharing stories with you. Temple Beth Torah (www.temple-beth-torah.org)
