Please provide answers the following three questions in an uploaded file:
1. Throughout your career in the rabbinate, in what ways have you sought to integrate your scholarly pursuits and congregational responsibilities?
2. Since the intent of the Silver Fellowship is for the successful candidate to return to a full-time congregational post after the semester is over, how would your serving as a Daniel Jeremy Silver Fellow enrich your congregational experiences and/or abilities? What would you hope to gain from your semester at Harvard that might enhance your life and the life of your congregation and community?
3. What do you see as natural bridges between the active rabbinate and the scholarly, academic life? What as unavoidable conflicts?
