Our Rabbi

Our rabbis are students in the Rabbinical Program of the Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion. Each student is required to fulfill two years of professional experience prior to ordination. We are privileged to participate in this program. Each new student rabbi brings us a fresh point of view that enriches our experience as we pray, celebrate and study together.
