Rabbi Josh Warshawsky
Rabbi Josh Warshawsky is a nationally touring Jewish musician, songleader, and composer. Originally from Chicago, Josh has shared his original melodies with over 100 Jewish communities throughout the US, Canada, the UK, and Israel. He has released four albums of Jewish music with a fifth on the way in 2022, and he has been featured on six Jewish music anthology publications in the last six years. The melodies are written intentionally to express the deep meaning of the words of our tradition. His newest album, “Chaverai Nevarech Vol. II: The Shabbos EP,” was released in October 2021 along with a video series and teachings and is available anywhere you find your music.
In addition to his work with communities worldwide, Rabbi Warshawsky currently serves as the rabbi-in-residence of the Solomon Schechter Day School of Metropolitan Chicago. Josh was ordained as a rabbi in May 2019 from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in Los Angeles. Before starting rabbinical school, Warshawsky was hired as the first artist-in-residence at Temple Beth Am, a one year position that turned into three. He is a sought after teacher, and serves on the faculty of Songleader Boot Camp where he also leads the Ramah Shabbaton and Chavurah. Josh has spent the past 20 summers at Camp Ramah in Wisconsin, and the last 9 summers also teaching and performing at Ramah camps across the country.
Josh is originally from Deerfield, IL, and after spending a decade in New York, Los Angeles, and Israel, now lives in Columbus, OH with his wife Adina Allen.
