RABBI MICHAEL BOINO, was ordained this May at the Jewish Theological Seminary. Rabbi Boino joined our community in 2013 as the Ken Kolker Rabbinic Intern. We’re thrilled that he will again be co-leading with Rabbi Uhrbach on the High Holy Days, and periodically over the summer.
Rabbi Boino earned undergraduate degrees in both vocal performance and composition at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, studying composition with Christopher Theofanidis and Kevin Puts, and voice with John Shirley-Quirk and Marianna Busching. His music has been commissioned and performed by both synagogues and churches in America, Israel, Australia and the United Kingdom, as well as by the Eaken Piano Trio and the International Women’s Brass Conference. Rabbi Boino is a two time consecutive recipient of the Guild of Temple Musician’s Young Composer’s Award, and is published by Transcontinental Music Publications. He continues to study as a classical singer in the voice studio of Candace Goetz.
In addition to his considerable intellectual and musical gifts, Rabbi Boino has particular skill in pastoral counseling, and is pursuing a Masters in Social Work.
