Rabbi's Biography

Rabbi Jennifer Schlosberg became the rabbi at The Glen Rock Jewish Center in July 2015. She aims to build relationships with community members of all ages and incorporate the richness of the Jewish tradition into their lives in ways that speak to them most deeply and personally.

During her time at the GRJC, Rabbi Schlosberg has reinstated the chesed committee, spearheaded a team of volunteers to oversee the kosher kitchen, engaged nursery school-aged families at a monthly Tot Shabbat service, and taught a regular “Torah on Tap” class. She is a member of the North Jersey Board of Rabbis, active with the Religious Communities of Glen Rock, and is a current rabbinical fellow with JOIN for Justice. She volunteers at a local assisted living facility, leading holiday programs for residents.

Previously, Rabbi Schlosberg was Assistant Rabbi at Temple Beth Sholom in Roslyn Heights, NY, a synagogue of more than 700 member families. She is a graduate of The Jewish Theological Seminary of America (JTS), where she was the recipient of three prestigious fellowships: the Neubauer Fellowship, the Schusterman Rabbinical Fellowship, and the Legacy Heritage Rabbinic Fellowship. While studying at JTS, Rabbi Schlosberg was the rabbinic intern at Congregation Ansche Chesed in New York City and at Dix Hills Jewish Center in Dix Hills, NY. She was also the Legacy Heritage Rabbinic Fellow at Congregation Ahavath Israel in Kingston, NY, where she served as the community's rabbi. As a chaplain at Bellevue Hospital and Jewish Home Lifecare, she received extensive training in pastoral care.

Prior to entering rabbinical school, Rabbi Schlosberg worked for Hillel as a Jewish outreach professional at Miami University in Ohio and UC-Santa Barbara and then at Hillel's Schusterman International Center in Washington, DC.
