“Rabbi in Residence” for Christ Church Cathedral

Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro to teach, preach and advocate for justice

July 25, 2015 [Springfield, Mass.]— This morning Bishop Doug Fisher announced a new addition to the staff at Christ Church Cathedral – Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro. The full text of the bishop’s announcement follows.


With the Rev. Tom Callard I am pleased to announce the appointment of Rabbi Mark Dov Shapiro as Christ Church Cathedral's first 'Rabbi in Residence' effective September 1. He will teach adult education classes, preach periodically at the Sunday liturgy and offer his wisdom on a host of social justice concerns.

Mark's journey to the rabbinic ministry began at home in Toronto. After completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Intellectual History at York University, Mark attended the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati where he was ordained as a rabbi. He earned the Doctor of Divinity degree from the same institution in 2002.

So proud to have been able to help NuDay Syria. Christ Church Cathedral and multiple churches and our local Mosque worked together to raise funds for a new school in a displacement camp in Syria near the Turkish border. At least 400 kids will know the USA is their friend, and that they are not alone. How much to do this? $13,650. Thanks to my friend Liz Stevens for delivering check and supplies to Nadia.

Parking at the Cathedral can be a challenge, but we aim to accommodate you. We are reserving some handicapped spaces for those who attend 10am service. Spaces are along the back of the Cathedral, facing the Dr. Seuss statues. Sunday morning you may also park in the museum parking lots, past the Cathedral on the right on Edwards Street.
