Rabbi Eliseo D. Rozenwasser
Rabbi Eliseo D. Rozenwasser returns to Har Zion Temple in the position of Rabbi. For the past 10 years he was the Rabbi of Adath Shalom Synagogue in Parsippany, New Jersey. During his tenure, Adath Shalom substantially increased its membership and programing. Before assuming the pulpit at Adath Shalom, Rabbi Rozenwasser had been an assistant rabbi at Har Zion from 1989 to 1994.
In addition to his synagogue responsibilities, Rabbi Rozenwasser has been very active in the MetroWest Jewish Federation and with the New Jersey Region of the Rabbinical Assembly, where he was the Regional President in 2003-2004.
Rabbi Rozenwasser brings to Har Zion many years of rabbinic experience, in Argentina and Israel as well as the United States. He also has special training in family counseling and caring for the terminally ill. Rabbi Rozenwasser spent two years studying at the Spirituality Institute and also trained in Israel as a Sofer Stam or Scribe. The Institute for Jewish Spirituality is a retreat-based learning program for Jewish professionals and lay leaders to help them develop their own inner lives so that they may lead with more compassion, wisdom and authenticity. It teaches and deepens the practices of Jewish prayer, study, meditation, movement and spiritual guidance.
Rabbi Rozenwasser received ordination from the Seminario Rabinico Latinoamericano; the Conservative Seminary, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, his native country; and from Rabbi Shmuel Avidor Hacohen z"l, an Orthodox Rabbi from Jerusalem.
Rabbi Rozenwasser takes great gratification in teaching and in working one-on-one with individuals and families.
In his free time, Rabbi Rozenwasser enjoys going to concerts, listening to music, reading, watching sports events, exercising, swimming, and playing tennis.
