When Rabbi Aaron Melman first stepped foot in Congregation Beth Shalom, he knew he’d found his home. That was 13 years ago, when the rabbi was just out of rabbinical school at The Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York City. At the time, he was interviewing for a position as an assistant rabbi, which he eventually received.
“I fell in love with the community. It was really the one place I wanted to be,” said Melman, a Northbrook resident.
