New rabbi joins Temple Israel of Portsmouth


PORTSMOUTH — The Temple Israel board of directors announces the appointment of Rabbi David Ross Senter as the congregation’s new rabbi, spiritual leader and head of the 100-student Religious School.

Senter, a fourth-generation rabbi, maintains a tradition of strong rabbinic leadership, blending innovation and Judaic tradition.

Temple Israel of Portsmouth is a welcoming, egalitarian, Conservative synagogue.

“Being there for people in their times of joy and sorrow is one of the most rewarding aspects of the rabbinate,” Senter said. “Each life-cycle event leaves an indelible mark on my soul and shapes who I am as a rabbi. I am thankful for the opportunity to share in these special moments.”

Temple Israel President Barney Share said, “Whether conducting Shabbat services, leading a thought-provoking Lunch & Learn discussion about end-of-life issues, or visiting with our preschoolers, in every instance Rabbi Senter demonstrates his love of Judaism.”
