Rabbi Tilles is excited to be joining the Schechter community this year as the Director of Jewish Life and Learning. He holds a B.A.in Social Work from the University of Pittsburgh as well as Rabbinical Ordination and a certificate in Pastoral Education from the The Jewish Theological Seminary – JTS. Prior to joining Schechter, Rabbi Tilles served as the Associate Rabbi at the Merrick Jewish Centre in Merrick, Long Island. Rabbi Tilles looks forward to fostering meaningful Jewish experiences for all of our Schechter students and families.
In his free time, Rabbi Tilles likes to take his sons for a bike ride, but he is still getting used to the Boston hills!
Rabbi Tilles feels #SchechterPride already from the warmth and kindness that has been extended to him and his family from the school community as he begins to work in this new and exciting role!
