I have started my 26th year in Jewish Education and loving every moment of it. The majority of my career (19 years) was spent at Akiba Academy of Dallas where I taught for 10 years and eventually became Head of School. In my 3rd year at HAGH I am privileged to work with an exceptional staff of teachers who have enthusiastically embraced many new curricular initiatives that strengthen our school. I love teaching and I currently teach 7th Grade American History which culminates with a three day Washington DC trip. I am married to Shifra who grew up in Baltimore. Our youngest son Nachum is in 8th grade at HAGH. Our daughter Fruma is in 12th grade at Hebrew High School of New England. Our children have thrived so much in our very special West Hartford Jewish Community. Our oldest daughter Miriam is married with three precious children. In addition to my title as Abba and Rabbi Silver I am also known as Zaidy Zev.
