As Darchei Noam Glenbrook begins its tenth year, we welcome Rabbi Daniel Fox as spiritual leader of the congregation. After five years at Beth Jacob Congregation in Oakland, California, Rabbi Fox and his wife Bryna are excited to make Northbrook their new home. He is thrilled to join the DNG community, where he looks forward to continuing to grow the educational and social programming. Rabbi Fox loves teaching both adults and children, and he looks forward to keeping DNG a place where Jews of all different ages, backgrounds, and interests can feel comfortable and welcomed.
Rabbi Fox has the unique ability to relate to and inspire all segments of the community, from the youngest children through the youth and adolescents to the elder members, who enjoy and benefit from his d’rashot, classes, and visits. Bryna makes herself available to members of the community for guidance and support and proudly manages a home which is open to the community.
Aside from his rabbinical duties, Rabbi Fox teaches 10th and 11th grade at Ida Crown Jewish Academy. Leading classes in Talmud and Chumash, he is excited by the opportunity to inspire high school students to learn about and appreciate their connection to Judaism.
Rabbi Fox graduated from Yeshiva University and received his ordination from the Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary. Before coming to Darchei Noam Glenbrook, Rabbi Fox served as associate rabbi at Beth Jacob Congregation in Oakland, California, and rabbinic intern at Congregation Keter Torah in his hometown of Teaneck, New Jersey. Bryna is a graduate of Stern College and is a registered nurse. Bryna and Rabbi Fox are the proud parents of five young children.
Committed to maintaining a welcoming and supportive atmosphere for its members and guests and to providing the opportunity for spiritual learning and growth, Darchei Noam Glenbrook strives to meet the spiritual, religious, educational, and social needs of its members within the framework and halacha of modern orthodox Judaism. DNG is a community comprised of members who are integral participants in secular society. Members recognize their social and civic responsibilities and are deeply committed to religious tradition, study of Torah, and observance of Shabbat and kashrut laws. The DNG community believes in the love for fellow Jews and is a strong advocate and supporter of the State of Israel.
