Rabbi Evan Moffic
Congregation Solel Rabbi and Writer
Evan Moffic is a rabbi and writer. According to Dr. David Ellenson, President of the nation's largest Jewish seminary, Evan is one of the country's most truly charismatic and thoughtful young leaders.
Since 2009, he served as the spiritual leader of Congregation Solel in suburban Chicago, having been named to that post at age 30. He has a particular passion for teaching the Old Testament and the Talmud to Christians in a way that deepens their own faith and spirituality.
Evan frequently appears on the Fox News Channel as a religious commentator, most recently to discuss faith in the aftermath of the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut.
Committed to interfaith relations and sharing Jewish wisdom with the world, Evan lectures and teaches at churches and interfaith institutions around the country. He also writes for Beliefnet.com, the largest multifaith website in the world, where his blog is among its most popular and widely shared.
Originally from Houston, Texas, Evan spent his formative years in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He graduated from Stanford University in 2000 (Chelsea Clinton was a classmate), and after studying in Jerusalem and Cincinnati, he was ordained as a Rabbi in 2006. In 2012 he was named one of the 36 under 36 Jewish leaders to watch in Chicago.
In addition to his regular published sermons and essays, Evan has written for the Chicago Tribune, the Forward, MichaelHyatt.Com, and several other newspapers and magazine.
