Royi Shaffin

Rabbi Royi Shaffin is the rabbi and education director of Congregation Or Atid in Richmond, Virginia. He has written a short story published in Dor: Journal For Adult Children of the Holocaust, an entry in A Tribute To a Teacher, by Jeffrey Spoden, and numerous op-ed articles for newspapers such as the Jewish State and the Jewish Journal. His writings span the full spectrum of Jewish religious and political topics. He considers himself a member of both the faith community and the community of free-thinkers. As such, he bridges the gap between religion and reason, belief and inquiry. His commentary on Israel and the Jewish world uses unique insight, satire, comedy, passion, and life experience to shed light on Israeli and Jewish life in the modern world and creating visions and possibilities for a better future.
