Friendship House Gets a New ‘Recovery Rabbi’

Rabbi Pinson, the Recovery Rabbi for metro Detroit is stepping back from his role. He’s been a pretty amazing ally for the recovering community and terrific example for non-recovering clergy.

Rather than trying to create his own faith-based recovering community, he focused on enlarging a Jewish tribe within the existing recovering community and serving as a bridge to the recovering community for his faith/cultural community.

I’m glad to hear he’ll still be around though he’ll be missed in his role as Recovery Rabbi.

Welcome to Rabbi Blumstein. We’ll look forward to getting to know you.
