Rabbi Moshe Davis
Rabbi Moshe Davis is originally from Chicago and relocated to Charleston four years ago from Houston, TX. He received his BA in psychology, MS in Jewish education as well as rabbinic ordination from Yeshiva University. Additionally, he has completed advanced training on the laws of Jewish Family Purity from Machon Puah in Jerusalem and outreach training at Ner Le’Elef.
Rabbi Davis has a passion for outreach and loves engaging Jews of every age and background. On a Shabbat afternoon he can be found walking the streets of downtown Charleston with his children and saying “Shabbat Shalom” to people they meet.
Rabbi Davis has also been involved in social action organizations, following the Talmudic dictum kol Yisrael Areivim zeh bazeh, all Jews are responsible for one another. He hopes to inspire within his congregation ahavat yisrael, ahavat hatorah and ahavat eretz yisrael, a love of the Jewish people, a love of Torah and a love of the Land of Israel, three critical ingredients in the ultimate imperative of ahavat Hashem, a love of the Almighty.
Rabbi Davis is married to Ariela, an experienced Jewish educator, who has taught Judaic studies on the middle school, high school, and collegiate levels in both the US and Israel. Ariela received her BA in Journalism from Stern College for Women, her MS in Jewish education from Azrieli Graduate School for Jewish Education and was a fellow at a joint program between Midreshet Lindenbaum and Hebrew University. Her primary area of academic interest is Holocaust studies.
Rabbi and Ariela Davis are the proud parents of Yaelle, Elisheva, Adiel and Doniel.
