Rabbi Ilyse Glickman

Rabbi Glickman grew up and did her undergraduate education here in Toronto. She was then ordained as a Rabbi in 2004 at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, the rabbinical school of the Reform movement, and has two decades of experience as a Rabbi and educator. During that time, Rabbi Glickman has served congregations like Habonim here in Toronto, Am Shalom in Barrie, Shaarei Tefillah in Manhattan, and Scarsdale Synagogue in New York state. She has also worked with several Jewish organizations, including the Reform Jewish Community of Canada, Hillel, and Shoresh. On top of all that, Rabbi Glickman has completed two Masters degrees – one in Hebrew Literature and the other in Religious Education – and is currently working on a Doctorate in Jewish Education. Oh, and did we mention that she’s a certified yoga teacher?

Rabbi Glickman is delighted to be joining the DJC community along with her husband, David Rosen, who is the Senior Cantor at Holy Blossom, and their 11-year-old child Joel.
