In May 2010, Rabbi Alan LaPayover, ’02, joined the staff of the Kaplan Library as assistant librarian. He had previously served as associate rabbi of Congregation Beth Am Israel in Penn Valley, PA, and interim rabbi of Congregation Tiferes B’nai Israel in Warrington, PA. He also has been a member of the faculty of the Florence Melton Adult Mini-School at Gratz College, and has taught various adult education classes at Philadelphia-area synagogues. As a Jewish educational consultant for the Interfaith Center of Greater Philadelphia, LaPayover was part of an interfaith team that designed and oversaw the curriculum for the Center’s very successful “Walk the Walk” teen program. Since July 2015, LaPayover has been the director of the RRC’s Mordecai M. Kaplan Library.
LaPayover is a graduate of Pennsylvania State University and has a master’s degree from the Union Theological Seminary in New York City.
