Teaching, preaching and pastoring in various locations throughout New York, Rabbi Dan Ain is the Rabbi-in-Residence at 92YTribeca and has most recently served as the Rabbi of The New Shul in Greenwich Village. He continues to host The New Shul’s Rebbe’s Table at City Winery in Tribeca, a monthly program which has included provocative interactions with, among others, artist Maira Kalman, composer David Lang and astronomer David Hogg.

As a freelance journalist, he has explored the interplay between religion and politics both in America and Israel. His writing has appeared in The New York Jewish Week, Sh’ma, The New York Blueprint, Conservative Judaism and the Boston College Law Magazine.
Ordained by The Jewish Theological Seminary, he was a member of the first class of CLAL’s "Rabbis Without Borders" and is currently a CLAL Associate.
He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, writer and poet, Alana Joblin Ain.
