About Rabbi Rosenberg

Rabbi Dina Rosenberg was welcomed as Rabbi of the Bay Ridge Jewish Center just a few months after her ordination from The Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 2011. While training to be a rabbi, Rabbi Rosenberg served many diverse congregations including Biloxi, MS and Watertown, NY. She also completed two 400-hour fellowships as a chaplain in hospitals located in Harlem and in Seattle, WA and continues to work toward her accreditation to become a certified chaplain.

Rabbi Rosenberg is very hands-on and innovative. She has begun many new projects at BRJC for all ages and interests including: a BRJC Community and Educational Garden, a half-marathon running group, an Introduction to Judaism Course, 20’s – 30’s Young Professionals’ Group, Musical Shabbat, and a Chesed (act of kindness) Committee devoted to connecting to our homebound and elderly congregants. Rabbi’s love for children is obvious by her creation of a Toddler Shabbat Program, monthly Family Services, and Programming for Families with Young Children including rebuilding the BRJC Hebrew School with many children that LOVE being at BRJC. Rabbi Rosenberg loves officiating at life cycle events and gives each family lots of personal attention. She makes a point to meet with every person that walks through the door to ensure that a safe space is created for everyone.

As a fellow Bay Ridge resident, Rabbi Rosenberg works on a regular basis with local organizations and meets with other local clergy to enhance the religious life of all Bay Ridge residents and to ensure that multi-faith families feel welcome. A big proponent in volunteering her time, she has begun a monthly volunteer day for the BRJC that has already proven to be a success. Her passion for working with young children, thinking out-of-the-box and teaching makes her a wonderful fit for the BRJC.

Rabbi Rosenberg looks forward to deepening and strengthening her relationships with the members of BRJC and is excited to welcome new individuals to help her reinvigorate this wonderful community.

Rabbi Rosenberg is thrilled to have many years ahead to grow with the Bay Ridge Jewish Center.
