Rabbi Taron TachmanRabbi Taron Tachman has served Beth Tikvah Congregation since July of 2011. There is much Rabbi Tachman loves about being a rabbi. Above all, he values the opportunity to forge sacred relationships with others and to be a part of their lives. Rabbi Tachman especially enjoys learning from, and teaching to, people of all ages; inspiring others to be their best selves and to good in the world; and helping others to find a meaningful, transformative connection to Judaism and the Jewish community.

Before joining Beth Tikvah Congregation, Rabbi Tachman served for seven years as an Associate Rabbi at Temple Sholom of Chicago. Rabbi Tachman was ordained as a rabbi in 2004 by the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York. Prior to rabbinical school, Rabbi Tachman earned his undergraduate degree in Psychology at Michigan State University. He then went on to earn a Master of Social Work at the University of Michigan, and a Certificate in Jewish Communal Service and Judaic Studies from the Sol Drachler Program in Jewish Communal Leadership at the University of Michigan. In addition to his educational experience, Rabbi Tachman has served as the Campus Hillel Director at Eastern Michigan University. He has also worked for the College Education Department of the Union of Reform Judaism, and spent a year volunteering in Israel on a program called Project Otzma.

Rabbi Tachman is very interested in Interfaith Dialogue and Friendship and is member of the Schaumburg-Hoffman Clergy Association as well as a leader of Abraham Salon. He is also committed to outreach to Interfaith families and those who do not yet have strong connection to a congregation, and is supportive of the efforts of the Big Tent Judiasm (formerly Jewish Outreach Institute) and Rabbi Tachman also values and supports the work of Tikkun Olam as accomplished by (in addition to BTC’s own efforts) the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago (JUF), American Jewish World Service, and Jewish Helping Hands. In addition, Jewish camping is extremely important to Rabbi Tachman and to all of Beth Tikvah Congregation. Rabbi Tachman is proud to spend two weeks of each summer at Olin Sang Ruby Union Institute (OSRUI) camp, as well as serving on the Rabbinic Advisory Committee.

Rabbi Tachman grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, is married to Sara Siegall, and the two have two adorable little daughters.
