The Interfaith Round Table of Washtenaw County invites you to an evening of readings shared from the writings of Rabbi Rob Dobrusin. Rabbi Dobrusin is a long-time friend and former Board member of IRT and the Rabbi Emeritus of Beth Israel Congregation in Ann Arbor. He is the author of The Long Way Around: Stories of Sermons from a Life Journey and the host of the podcast Wrestling and Dreaming: Engaging Discussions on Judaism.
During our time together, Rabbi Dobrusin will read from his book, his sermons, and additional writings to share his reflections upon Judaism and his life experiences. We welcome hearing from him.
Born and raised in Boston (and a passionate Boston Red Sox fan), Rabbi Dobrusin was ordained as a rabbi in 1982 and came to Ann Arbor in 1988. In addition to serving two congregations, Rabbi Dobrusin has been active in many causes including serving as a board member and national co-chair of T’ruah: the Rabbinic Call to Human Rights. Since retiring from the pulpit in 2018, he has continued teaching and supporting community institutions including serving as a member of the board of directors of the International House of Ann Arbor and volunteering at the Humane Society of Huron Valley. He is also a Volunteer Zoo Educator at the Toledo Zoo. Rabbi Dobrusin and his wife Ellen are the parents of two adult children and their family includes Sami, a sweet mixed breed rescue dog and two gentle cats, Spot and Ozzie.
