North Miami Beach Police Department Appoints New Orthodox Jewish Chaplain


The North Miami Beach Police Department this past Monday appointed a new Orthodox Jewish Chaplain, Sgt. Richard Silberman told JP.

Rabbi Mark Rosenberg, a North Miami Beach resident active in many volunteer groups there, has been added to the North Miami Beach chaplaincy team. In addition to his new duties, Rabbi Rosenberg serves as Chaplain with the Florida Highway Patrol, as well as clergy for the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office. North Miami Beach Interim Chief-of-Police William Hernandez welcomed rabbi Rosenberg.

Sgt. Silberman said the appointment was made because of Rabbi Rosenberg’s “good ties with the Jewish community.”

Chaplains serve police officers in times of need, and assist police in dealing with traumatic events in the community.

North Miami Beach already has one Jewish chaplain, Rabbi Yerucham Bensinger.

In a statement to JP Updates, Rabbi Rosenberg said, “I take great pride in the honor of being made part of such a wonderful agency. I am excited, and look forward to working with Chief Hernandez and Sgt. Silberman, with whom I have developed a great working relationship over the last few years, as well as with other personnel of the North Miami Beach Police Department.”
