The Downtown Congregations to End Homelessness is very excited to announce that the new chair of our Steering Committee is Rabbi Sim Glaser from Temple Israel! The position of Chair of the DCEH Steering Committee is a leadership position, which guides the work of the DCEH collaboration to engage our members in the work to end homelessness.
Rabbi Glaser has been an Associate Rabbi at Temple Israel since 1999. Rabbi Glaser brings to DCEH his passion for social justice and affordable housing, his creative thinking, his prophetic voice, and his focus on acting together. While at Temple, Rabbi Glaser has been involved or spearheaded efforts to better our world with the neighborhood school, Jefferson Elementary, addressing issues of homelessness, advocating for humanitarian efforts in Darfur, and more.
We are so grateful and excited for new leadership. We are also grateful for our outgoing Chair, Rolf Lowenberg-DeBoer, who will take over as Co-Chair of the Steering Committee for continuity in our leadership.
