DANIEL A. ROBERTS (D.D., D. Div., F.T.)

He has performed as a standup comic at various Independent and Assisted Living venues in the Denver area. 

Rabbi Roberts is a confirmand of Congregation Rodef Sholom, and no one, at the time, ever entertained the thought that he would become a rabbi. He is rabbi emeritus of Temple Emanu El, Cleveland, Ohio, where he served for over thirty-five years. Rabbi Roberts also served at Temple Beth Israel in Sharon, PA for 10 years until its merger with Congregation Rodef Sholom. 

Rabbi Roberts is also a Fellow in Thanatology as certified by the Association of Death Education and Counseling, and has done extensive work in the field of bereavement and mourning, and has produced a video on teenage suicide entitled Inside I Ache that has had national distribution. Rabbi Roberts is the author of a book on Clergy Retirement: Every Ending a New Beginning (published by Wipf & Stock Publishing Company) and is a co-editor with Melinda Moore of The Suicide Funeral (or Memorial Service): Honoring their Memory, Comforting their Survivors (published by Wipf & Stock Publishing Company)

Rabbi Roberts and his wife and actress, Elaine Rembrandt, are currently living in Denver, CO.
