Rabbi Aaron Philmus - As our spiritual leader, Rabbi Philmus enjoys teaching about Judaism in every venue we provide, and to all ages. You may join him when he is playing guitar and singing with our youngest congregants or leading a traditional holiday observance outside around a fire pit. He is as at home on a Jewish nature hike as he is in the sanctuary and he brings his spirituality with him wherever he goes. You may also enjoy Rabbi Philmus's writing on all things Jewish in our synagogue publications, the website and on our Facebook page "Congregation Brothers of Israel Newtown". He would love you to join our Facebook group for all things CBOI.
Cantor Robert Winter - The congregation enjoys and appreciates Cantor Winter's incredible voice chanting services and leading choir. His energy and dedication to the synagogue may seem boundless during our many high holiday services. On Shabbat Cantor Winter generously shares the pulpit with our b'nai mitzvah students honing their hebrew skills.
Rabbi Emeritus Howard Hersch - After 48 years, Rabbi Howard Hersch may have stepped away from the day-to-day work of spiritual leader of our synagogue family, but he remains an integral part of lifecycles, events and holidays at CBOI. He is an inspiring mentor to Rabbi Philmus and a source of wisdom and comfort to many long time members.
