Since his Sophomore year at SUNY-Albany in 1978, Rabbi Marc Disick wanted to become a rabbi. His eclectic background took him from a Lubavitch Bar Mitzvah on Long Island, to a Kibbutz outside of Jerusalem and then to Reform Judaism's seminary, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion where he was ordained in 1986. A pick-up pianist and accompanist, he played his way through graduate school.
As a congregational rabbi, Disick learned from his mentor, Rabbi Charles Kroloff in Westfield NJ. He's served congregations in Kansas City MO, Wilkes-Barre PA and Massapequa NY. For seven years Rabbi Disick was also a Regional Director for the Union for Reform Judaism where he studied the synagogue as family system. For the last six years, he's made Temple Sinai of Stamford CT his spiritual home. Sinai is well known as a profoundly caring synagogue with a deep and active social conscience; a good fit for Rabbi Disick's creative spirit Temple Sinai's worship is, as one would expect, filled with amazing music.
Rabbi Marc Disick graduate from SUNY-Albany in 1980 with a BA in Judaic Studies and Rhetoric & Communications. He did work toward an MA in Jewish Education at NYU before attending Hebrew Union College where he was ordained in 1986. He finished coursework for a D.Min. (a clergy counseling degree) at New York's Postgraduate Center for Mental Health.
