Temple B'nai Shalom is served by Rabbi David Nelson, who usually leads services on one Friday evening and Saturday morning each month, and on some holidays. We also sometimes have visiting rabbis for a weekend. Services are led by members of the congregation when we don't have a rabbi.
Rabbi Nelson served Beth Shalom in Oak Park, Mich., for 36 years before his retirement, during which the congregation doubled in size. His wife, Alicia is now an active participant at Temple B’nai Shalom.
The Nelsons are parents of three children and six grandchildren. They own a summer/weekend home in Bridgman, near Benton Harbor, which serves as a place for them to stay on weekends when they are at Temple B’nai Shalom and as a retreat for family gatherings.
Rabbi Nelson has served on several boards, both Judaic and State of Michigan advisory committees, and has chaired the National Membership Committee for the Rabbinical Assembly of America. His career includes participating as a panelist on a weekly television program. His interests include the Detroit Tigers, dining with friends, traveling, and collecting Judaica and watches.
