Biographical Info

Rabbi David Nelson joined the JHCN staff in 2006 after retiring from his pulpit position at Beth Shalom Synagogue in Oak Park. He received his Rabbinic Ordination from Jewish Theological Seminary in 1967. Rabbi Nelson became involved in hospice care because he felt that one of the most satisfying parts of his rabbinate was the mitzvah of Bikkur Cholim (visiting the sick). Rabbi Nelson serves on the Michigan Executive Clemency Advisory Council to which he was appointed to by Governor Granholm in 2006.
