Rabbi Evan Moffic belongs to a new generation of rabbis opening up Judaism to people of all faiths. He speaks on ancient Jewish wisdom at churches and synagogues and book festivals across the country.
He has been featured in Christianity Today, the Washington Post, the Jewish Daily Forward, Sojourners, and dozens of other publications. He is a regular commentator on religious and social issues for Fox News and CNN.
Rabbi Moffic is the spiritual leader of Congregation Solel, a 500-family temple in the Chicago suburbs. As a rabbi he believes interfaith dialogue not only enriches people of all faiths but also helps counter antisemitism around the world.
His first book, What Every Christian Needs to Know About Passover, has been used for Passover meals and programs in many churches. His second book, What Every Christian Needs to Know about the Jewishness of Jesus, looks at Rabbi Jesus’s life, death and teachings through a Jewish framework. It provides a new understanding of the Lord’s prayer, the meaning of messiah, the parables and much more.
Evan graduated from Stanford University in 2000 and was ordained as a rabbi in 2006. Married to Arielle Poster Moffic and the father of two young children, he became the youngest senior rabbi of a large congregation in 2009. He speaks frequently around the country and blogs at www.rabbi.me, MichaelHyatt.com and the Huffington Post.
