Rabbi Moffic belongs to a new generation of rabbis opening up Judaism to people of all faiths.

With Rabbi Moffic, you will find an accessible guide to ancient Jewish wisdom for a happier, healthier life.

A graduate of Stanford University, Rabbi Moffic was ordained in 2006, and in 2009 he became the youngest senior rabbi of a large synagogue. He continues to lead Congregation Solel, a 500-family synagogue in the Chicago suburbs. He speaks frequently at conferences, companies, and houses of worship across the country.

He was described by the Chicago Tribune as “the rabbi we’d love to call our own — wise and kind, humble and good beyond words.”

This timely book tracing the history of anti-semitism on both the left and the right explains why the Jewish people are often the ‘canary in the coal mine’. Written after the riot in Charlottesville and sent to the printer after the murders at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, this book explains the modern rise of anti-semitism by looking at its historical roots.

Rabbi Moffic will bring copies of his new book for purchase and autograph.
