Daniel Medwin

Rabbi Dan Medwin was ordained from Hebrew Union College (’10) where he also earned a Masters in Jewish Education. Dan began his undergraduate career at Brandeis University (’01) as a Computer Science major and spent his time working at the computer help desk.

Finding himself doing more counseling over deleted papers than technical help and wanting to pursue a life in the rabbinate, Dan switched to a double major in Judaic Studies and Sociology. Nevertheless, computers and technology have remained an active passion in his life. In addition to designing websites and creating interactive online learning modules, Dan has also developed a unique style of worship called Visual T’filah which utilizes art and imagery to enhance prayer and deepen connections to liturgy. (For more information, see www.visualtfilah.com.)

Dan works for the CCAR further developing Visual T’filah and offering his technical expertise to the Reform Movement, through webinars, workshops, and scholar-in-residence weekends on such topics as “Using Social Media to build Community” and “Using Technology in the Classroom.”

Dan is married to his HUC classmate and life-journeyer, Rabbi Lydia Bloom Medwin, and they are the joyful parents of Zimra, their adorable daughter. Dan enjoys sharing the title “Rabbi Medwin” with his wife, as well as, with his mother.
